AUTOMATION - How to get Stories to populate under Epic Template

Hey everyone,

I am a bit stuck with some Automation around Epics and Stories.


I want to be able to have 3 Story Templates automatically created when I create an epic and have them attached as Subtasks (Sub-stories) of that epic.

At the moment, the Stories populate fine into the backlog, however, they are stand-alone, and then I manually have to link them to the epic template.

Hi @Joshua Buchanan , 


I think you don't need the branch "For Epic (parent)", you'll just need to set the "Epic Link" field in your stories. I believe something like this will work :

Let me know if this helps, 



This has worked - thank you Alexis!
