As part of on automation rule using subtask closure as a trigger, a condition exists related to parent issue type. For instance, if the subtask is of a Quality Control type and the parent is of a User Setup type, then the actions should fire. I have seen several instances of this logic breaking for reasons I'm unable to determine, to the point where seemingly identical situations will have different results.
Specifics of the rule:
I have validated the JQL and confirmed that the parent of a subtask is included, but see that the audit log claims the condition was not met. I confirm that the parent issues have never changed issue type. The rule appears to fail in this manner more often than it succeeds, but it does do both. Has anyone experienced anything similar
Maybe you've done this already, but the first thing I would do is litter your rule with "Audit Log" actions, in order to validate the issues and fields as the rule progresses during each execution. For example:
Then set up for a test and run the rule. Does the output in the Audit Log exactly match your expectations? Sometimes you'll see things you don't expect, and can then fix your rule.
Otherwise, if the problem persists, you have a lot of info for Atlassian Support to report a bug. Be sure to grant them access to your instance, and provide clear steps for them to reproduce in your instance (how to set up for the test, the rule name to run, to look in the Audit Log to verify issue fields as the rule executes, and what you expect to happen).
