Is there a quicker way to update the values of the child issues when values of Epic changes?

Jar Lady April 10, 2024

I have automation rule that creates story, task and sub task and inherit all the fields from epic once epic is created. I also need a way to update all these child issues when I update the fields in Epic. For example, I created an epic with value A and B. The automation rule runs and creates story, task and sub task for me with value A and B as well. However I need to update to value C and D for all the issues. How do I do that without having to create 1 rule for each "when issue value A changes" trigger rule? Cos if thats the case, if I have 50 fields, then I will need 50 automation rules to handle value change.

Thank you.

Hello @Jar Lady 

No, you dont need that many rules.

  • You will use Field Change trigger and choose all fields which are of interest.
  • Then do If condition, check issue type = epic
  • If so, do a branch, choose, Stories (or other issues in Epic)
  • Then you can edit and assign all Epic values of interest to stories.

Implement your rule and share screenshot of rule/audit log if stuck. Thanks!

I tried to set up this automation rule, but it still doesn't copy the value from the trigger issue over to the child issues (it did find the child issues). do you have sample of how it works?

What are you using to assign the due date in edit issue.

Please use {{triggerssue.Due Date}} smart value.

Hello, choose copy due date from trigger issue and test.. Or go back to set value and give smart value as mentioned earlier, both will work.
