How to create new tasks to with sub-tasks when story is created

Michał Pacewski April 3, 2024

Hey,

I am trying to achieve this:
1) When story is created - 
- Create or clone as a new task (type QA story) (this one works)
- Assign new QA story to epic QA (Does not work, field parent I have no idea is works corretly)
- Create new subtasks (Manual tests) to the new tasks - it is only creating subtasks to the trigger one. When I try do separate automation to add subtasks to new created or clone issue - it does not work (it works when I create manualy QA tasks, but not when created by automation)

Hi @Michał Pacewski 

The create subtask action is based on the rule scope for which issue is "current".

To create the subtasks as children of the newly created, a branch is needed.  For example:

  • action: create issue, for a task
  • branch: to most recently created issue
    • action: create subtask

Kind regards,
Bill

Hi @Michał Pacewski 

you will have to use the field "Parent" to add the Story to an Epic. It works the same as Epic link did before.

For the Sub-Task rule, it's correct to have it as a seperate rule. You need to allow the rule to be triggered by other rules. You find that checkbox under Rule Details.

It works :)

Only the case with parent - when I choose it from the list i see only option "current issue" and "Trigger issue". I cannot choose from the list epic I want, as it is in "epic link"

 

How should it work?

Click on the 3 dots next to the field and choose "SET" rather than "COPY".
