Automation to set value based on when an epic link is added or removed

I am looking to copy a custom text field from an Epic when an epic link is added to an issue or clear the field when the epic link is removed.


Epic link is not a value I can use in the selection condition have been looking at the change log.

This rule works fine when you add an Epic link. But when the Epic Link is removed it continues past the compare values  and then fails as the is no Epic.

I was expecting to have a separate rule to clear the values when Changelog.Epic Link equals Empty 


Any recommendation as to a workable solution would be appreciated.

Hvae you tried having the left hand side of the condition simply:

{{issue.Epic Link}}

This will already be the latest value of the Epic Link field so when you've cleared it, it should evaluate to empty

I think the current value doesn't have the correct closing tag. It needs a {{/}} after the to

The best way to debug the smart value is to add a "Log action" before the condition and then just log out the smart value and then you can see what value you're comparing
