Jira Cloud Automation: display subtasks fields in the parent issue

hello,

I have sub-task1, sub-task2, sub-task3 created under a parent task.

I want to extract the value of a custom field present in all subtasks and display them in the parent issue.

  • Question 1: is it possible using Jira automation to get the value of this field from all the subtaks when ever a subtask is created or updated, and display them in the parent task ?
  • Question 2: using jira automation is it possible to diplay these values in a table (multiline text field & [Wiki Style Renderer]...) ? and eventually update this table whenever the value is updated in a subtask ?

 

Abdeladim,

In this case using branch you can get this informations.

You will need use variables in automation to store the past information

Hello @Carlos Faddul 

Thanks for your answer :)

In this case using branch you can get this informations.

let say I created a specific sub-task type.

My automation trigger is whenever that sub-task type is created (or updated) then I branch "for parent" so I can put the value of a specific field in the parent task. see the screen shot. With this automation rule I can't get the value of that field from the other sub-tasks and dislay them all in the parent issue.

I dont see how I can branch so I can update the parent and then branch to get all sub-tasks of that parent issue. if it possible to do, can you send an example ?

You will need use variables in automation to store the past information

I need this automation rule to be used for an issue type. I dont see how I can in one automation rule use variables to store the past information of all issues sharing the same issue type. can you send an example ?

In this case you can use two branchs to do this.

- One branch to run in your sub-tasks using a variable to "sum" the values.

- One branch to change the parent issue
