Hi, I am using Jira next-gen project and trying to create an automation rule to assign an issue to epic Assignee, but it does not work.
The rule says the Epic has no Assignee!
I am creating the Issue through the board, so Epic is assigned automatically:
Of course, the Epic has correct Assignee
When I set the trigger to manual and run it from the issue, the Issue is assigned correctly...
Is there any solution for this problem?
Hello @Filip_Niko ,
Following the configuration you have, I had the same result. If I change the action to Edit Fields then I am able to get to update successfully. My screenshot says Manual but I tested to with it running automatically when an issue is created. Hope this solves your issue.
I adjusted the settings and I can observe very strange behaviour now...
When I create Issue through the board under Epic, as shown above, the rule is triggered, complete successfully but will not assign the issue to me (in this example, because the epic is assigned to me). But then I open the epic and add a child issue, the rule is triggered and the issue is assigned correctly (to me!). WTF :D
BPO-94 created through the board, BPO-93 created as a child issue under epic.
It seems like to be clearly Jira bug and I wonder about opening a support ticket now...
@edwin vasquez As seen on the screen above, it says there is no Assignee for the Epic or there is no Epic assigned for the issue - both not true.
Re-fetch issue data
Issue data re-fetched from server successfully.
No fields or field values to edit for issues (could be due to some field values not existing in a given project): BPO-95 Can't find issue to copy from: assignee
