link creation as trigger to set custom field value Edited



I'm looking way to get trigger for script if certain type of link is added to Jira issue. 

Functionality which I try to create is flag issue and issues below marked with blocked by link. 

Meaning eg. in case of epic gets linked with blocked by to issue which is unresolved the epic and tasks under epic would be marked with flag in custom field. 

We have Scriptrunner for Jira in to use and would assume there is some way to do functionality.

Hello @Renni Verho 

You can achieve this using Automation for Jira

Trigger -> issue linked 

Edit issue: Re-fetch issue data

And -> Related issues condition -> epic -> exist

Branch rule -> for the linked issue -> type blocks

Add new component IF under branch rule -> Issue type equals - >epic

Then -> edit issue -> edit the desired field


Tested and working

If used for multiple projects add as a global rule and then restrict to desired projects or leave for all projects.

I were sure that must be possible and this is proof for that. 

Unfortunately we do not have - at least now - Automation for Jira plugin, so cannot test that.

Hello @Renni Verho

My advice is to try the trial version, you can renew your test license tree times so you basically have three months to test it.

See what else could you do with it.
