How to automatically set subtasks to have the same team as the parent issue?

We have our team boards driven by the 'team assigned to' field.

Currently when anyone creates a subtask it does not show on the active sprint board until the 'team assigned to' field is set to the correct value.

I would prefer not to allow subtasks to have a different 'team assigned to' value than the parent. But happy if I can just automate it so that subtasks will always have the same 'team assigned to' value as the parent when created or the parent 'team assigned to' value is changed.

I have tried with this rule, but I'm obviously misunderstanding how the rule works.

@Paul Treadwell 

I think you must add a Branch rule between "If:Sub-tasks present" and  the edit.

Hello @Paul Treadwell ,

in Edit issue fields, you need to Copy from parent, not from Current issue.

I also do not think "If: Sub-tasks present" needs to be used in this case.

Thanks will try it.

Do you think this will work when creating new sub tasks? So it will automatically take the 'team assigned to' of the parent issue?

Hi @Paul Treadwell 

No, you would need a second rule, triggered on issue create and checking for an issue type of sub-task to automatically synch the child to the parent for that case.

Best regards,

ok thanks will create that as well


thanks all
