Hi @Greg Mester@Alexey Matveev,

We use a post-function to update the value of the Epic Status field on transition. That is then used to help us calculate the cycle time of the Epics.

This is detailed in Understanding the cycle time of epics in Jira.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Nick Muldoon
Product Manager, Easy Agile
