Anuj B March 31, 2022

Can someone pls respond with the valid JSON object for JIRA Automation for this use case:

Set Parent Status from TO DO to IN PROGRESS when any one child (Story/Spike) moves to IN PROGRESS.

Thank you!

If you go to your automation library you will find an automation called When all stories are completed → then close epic. You can use that one as your start and change it to work for your scenario. All you would have to do is change the triggering status and remove the condition that checks the status on epic children. It would look something like this:
