Is it possible to have components assigned to epic and have its stories inherit them from the epic?

Carlos Garcia Navarro Community Leader Oct 14, 2017

We've created a big project in JIRA and we plan on having filters so each team can see only the stories relevant to them. We also want to be able to connect the proper component to their story. Is there a way to filter components, so e.g. components get assign to an epic and the stories linked to the epic inherit the components that its epic has? Thanks.

You are trying to update components of the linked stories. This feature is not available out of the box.

This situation should be ideally be handled by an event listener which will listen the issue updated event and update the linked stories.

However, an easy option is to have a global transition on the epic workflow "Update Component" . This will have a transition screen with component field (Component field should be removed from edit screens)

This global transition will have a post function which will update the linked stories, (Again such post function is not available and an add-on will be required). There are some add-ons which provide this feature

eg: JIRA Misc Workflow extension (Copy Field Value To Linked Issues)
