Automate a comment for the sub tasks of linked issues

Hi there, 

My Jira is structured in this way:


Feature (Story)

Stories linked to Feature

Subtasks - assigned to developers 


I focus on the features and changing descriptions in Features. I have created an automation that when I update the description of my Feature Automation posts a comment to the linked stories.. I want to take this one step further and add a comment to the sub tasks as well.   How do I take this one step further and notify the developer that the Feature description which is two levels up has been changed and to please look at it.

Hi Mikaela - I would try adding a Branch Rule/ Related Issues component to the end and place the Sub-task comment update there. 

I don't think there is an option to update a subtask comment

You should be able to do it through the linkage.

hi there.. I did.. there is no add comments to subtasks 

am i missing something?

Can you provide screenshots of both the audit log message when you run it, and the Add comment to issue details?
