How do i automate the description of a story of a particular epic?

I would like to put a template into the description section of all stories created that are connected to a specific Epic. 


Thank you.

Hi @Chris808

Wouldn't this simple automation work for you, or did I misunderstand your request?

Hi @Chris808 

You can set an automation that will set the Description at creation if the Epic Link value is the Epic you want and the description empty.


If you want to have it displayed before creation in the creation screen you will need an app, Scriptrunner.


Your use case is the first example in the page.



Hi Florian, 

Thank you for the help, unfortunately I don't have access to behaviours in my version, only automation. 

The automation solution will not works on the create screen, so it's porbably not what you are looking for.

You should be able to do it adding javascript within the field description in a configuration field. This is not recommanded and reauired to write javascript to do that.
