Automation Rules - Creating Initiatives with Epics and Stories

I've been trying unsuccessfully to create a rule that will create an Initiative with a few epics and stories.

I can create them fine but have not yet been able to set the Parent Link (on Epic) or Parent ID (on Stories).  I understand that the Parent Link can only be set using the advanced function via a JSON script but having tried every one I have come across on these forums but yet to find one that works.


Anyone have any ideas how to achieve this please?

Unfortunately, Parent Links in Portfolios aren't fields in the normal sense so they can't be edited using the JSON additional fields.
