Inherit fields from Epic to Story and see them updated already in the Story Create screen

Hi Jira Community,

it is possible to inherit the Assignee and Priority fields (maybe even others) from the Epic to a related Story and see those fields updated already in the Story Create screen ?


My situation is that I have an Epic with an Assigne and a Priority :


and I want to create a Story related to this Epic : 


, but I want the Assigne and Priority shown in the Story "Create issue" screen to copy those of the Epic and NOT to set their default value :



Because I can create Story with or without a related Epic, it's important that I can have:

- a Story Create screen with the fields updated already when the Story is linked to an Epic;

- a Story Create screen with th fields set at default value when the Story is NOT linked to an Epic.


There is some way to do this ?


Thank you all, bye.

Hi Fabio @Reply Test Group 

Our app Elements Copy & Sync could help you. It works with copy recipes, and you can set up the field mapping to copy the assignee and priority of the source issue (in your example, the Epic) to the target issue (Story).

You can see how it works in this video:

or check out the documentation.

with this app I managed to make a bridge between Epic and Story during the Story Create Screen appearance, to insert Epic's assignee and priority in Story's ones !




The only problem now is that I must use the "recipe" option instead of using the standard "Create issue in epic" button. 

Do you know if there is a way to bind this button with the recipe functionality?


Anyway, thank you again! 


Hi Fabio @Reply Test Group 

Currently there is no way to bind the button with the app functionality, but that is actually a really interesting use case. I think our product owner would be interested in learning more in order to determine if it's something that could be developed.

I can't find you in our list of evaluators, but if you'd be willing to chat for 20 minutes with our product owner you can send an email to or contact us through the chatbot on our website product pages

Hi Fabio,

you are right, Automation will not help you in that case.
Based on my experience you would need to inspect Clone Apps from Marketplace that are capable of doing so.
I have no specific recommendation for a specific one for Cloud on file - but your use case is a bit of an advanced one.
So, when choosing an App for the use case you would have to evaluate one that addresses more advanced logic - vendors providing Clone Apps should be helpful in evaluation with you your use case.
Probably also some offerings will appear here later on - sometimes it is the case.


This is a great use case for Automation for Jira.  Its included free with Jira Cloud.  Have a play around and come back to the community if you get stuck... it is very intuitive though so I am sure you will be fine

Ty @Aiden Marriott for your response, but using the Automations is not enough for my case.. 

With automations, I can easily pull this off AFTER the effective creation of the Story, but I want those updates to happen DURING the Story Create screen process (a situation where I still can't make use of automations because in this moment the Story is not even officially created).


I hope I have clarified.
