Linking multiple issues using a Scheduled Jira Automation task

I have a scheduled automation task that runs every X days and then creates a task. I am able to link a single issue within this task. Great.

What i'd like to be able to do is to link all tickets generated using this automation so as to build up a history, or (preferable) use JQL to link them via say their Description.

At the moment I can only see a way to link one issue via the issue key.

Hi @Simon Evans - Can you please confirm my understanding of what you're trying to accomplish?

  • On a schedule, task gets created
  • Task gets linked to some other issue
  • Desire to also link the created task to some static master task

Is this correct?

If so, after your Create Issue action, you can add this:

  • BRANCH (Recently Created Issue)
    • ACTION: Link Issue
      • Your Master Issue Key

Hi @Mark Segall thanks for the response.

This is what i want to achieve:

  • On a schedule, task gets created
  • Task gets linked to other issues based on JQL query


Currently i have this

  • On a schedule, task gets created
  • Task gets linked to one other issue only

Got it - So you'll want to do this after your issue is created:

    • Whatever other issues you want linked to your new issue
    • ACTION: Link Issue
      • Your desired Link Type
      • Most Recently Created Issue
