Ideally I am trying to create an automated rule in jira, such that when an epic (with certain labels) transitions to Done, it clones the epic, the stories and their sub-tasks into a new Epic ready to be prioritised in the backlog.
If this is not possible, then my option 2 is to have an automated rule that where a story (with certain labels) transitions to Done, it clones the story and its sub-tasks into a new story within the same epic.
Hi @Nicola Greene ,
this is actually a little complicated to do, but I found a way using 2 rules and labels to trigger copies.
First, you'll need to setup a rule that will clone the Epic, and "tag" the issue in this Epic with a temporary label (this way we now what issues to clone in the second step). We will also store the new Epic issue key in a temporary link for those stories.
It looks like this (first screenshot has the details of the Clone action, second one has the details for the Edit Issue action) :
Then, the second rule will identify the Stories that we need to clone (and also clone their subtasks). Again the screenshots will show the details for each action :
