Automating a list of sub-tasks to when an issue is created triggering errors



I would like to create a list of sub-tasks that are auto-populated when an issue is created in a project.

At the moment it says the automation should run when an issue is created however whenever a sub-task is created in other issues it is triggering the automation to attempt to run and then causing an error saying that a Parent Issue cannot be a sub-task.

Any help much appreciated,

Hi @Michael Barrett , 


to prevent this, I would suggest adding a simple Condition block after the trigger, to check that the issue type is not a sub task. Something like this :

Let me know if this helps,

Hey @Michael Barrett 

Welcome to Atlassian Community !!.

can you show the rule you have written and error log ?

Please check this example.

Maybe you can add a condition like issuetype in standardissuetypes() below issue created event
