Can't access Parent or Epic from Issue in Automation [next-gen] Edited

Hello everyone! 

I'm looking for a way adding Epic Summary to Issue Summary.

For example: Epic "Core", Issue "Implement button A", Issue Summary becomes "Core: Implement button A".

I created simple automation for that, but it doesn't work.

As  Summary I  tried different Smart values:

{{issue.epic.fields.summary}} : {{issue.parent.epic.summary}} : {{issue.fields.parent.fields.summary}} : {{issue.parent.summary}} : {{issue.summary}}

but only issue.summary worked, and I get  ": : : : testissue" as a result.

We use next-gen projects, when creating issue, it already attached to epic/parent.

Hi @Karim Shakirov

I know the relationship between Epic and Stories uses a new link method rather than Epic Link in Next-Gen.

It's why in JQL you can't search for the Epic Link of a Next-Gen story - it's the parent you search for. See more on that in JSWCLOUD-17239 

I tried every combination I could find for this one - including reviewing the fields via JSON to see if I could locate a field ID to use instead but couldn't get it to work - so it might not be possible yet.

I'd advise contacting to get their advice - or perhaps drop a comment on the above issue I linked to - Nathan from Atlassian has responded there to other queries in relation to this.

Let us know what the response is!
