Automation for Jira Cloud (Lite) - Issue Linked to Bug

I want to add a label to a JSD request when it is linked to an issue, but only if the Linked Issue Type is a bug. 

Any suggestions for accomplishing this?

Hey Lachlan, 

thanks for your message. John from Automation for Jira here. 

This is possible but it takes a little bit of work. I'll show you how the rule might work below. 

Three things to keep in mind. 

1) The rule will change depending on whether you are linking from the bug to the JSD ticket or the JSD ticket to the bug.

2) Needs to be a global rule. 

3) You will be using the linked issue trigger, which can get tricky. We recently published this blog which helps explain things:


Now onto the rule. I have created it as an IF/ELSE rule so you can see both sides. In the 'Edit Issue' action, you simply choose the labels field and put in the label you want.
