I have created a custom field called 'Pods' and have assigned few values to it. Now, while creating an EPIC, I'd populate 'Pods' manually. But when I create 'Tasks' and 'sub-tasks', I want the value to be automatically populated from Epic. How to go about it?

Thanks, 
Gaurav

Hello @Gaurav Singh 

Welcome to the Atlassian community!

You can do that with Automation Rules.

https://support.atlassian.com/cloud-automation/docs/jira-cloud-automation/

The basic structure of the rule would be:

Trigger: Issue Created

Condition: Related Issues Condition: Parent exists

Action: Edit issue

-- select the custom field

-- click the ... button next to the value entry field and select COPY

-- click on the text displayed in the value entry field to change the "copy from" option to Parent issue
