Change Epic status based on some or all linked issues statuses are updated to certain stage?

I want to change the status of an Epic when the status of one or all of its linked issues changes. The linked issues maybe on other projects and they can be tasks, incidents, bugs or sub-tasks.

The Epics I want to automate are on "Operation" project. I don't want this rule to execute on "APP" o "Web Crawling" projects.

(1) An Epic must be on "To do" that has linked issues from the same project and also from other projects, that are also on the backlog in the "To Do" status. As soon as one of his linked issues transitions from the backlog to an "in progress" state, I'd like to update the status of the Epic to "in progress" status as well.

(2) The Epic would then stay in a status of "in progress" until its last linked issue move to the state of "done", then the Epic will move into state of "done".

I have several Epics so it is ideal to automate so we never have to actually change the statuses of our Epics.

Thanks for the help.

 

This is my current workflow but it is not working

Hey there Sebastian,

In Jira, Epic links aren't "normal" issue links so that's why your "linked issue match" doesn't match anything.
You'll need to use the "JQL issues" drop down and enter:

"Epic Link" = {{issue.key}}

as the "Related issues JQL", before entering the appropriate statuses. (see image below)

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Hi Mike @Sebastian , I'm having exactly the same problem . but couldn't figure out the solution you proposed .should I first install a plugin ? can you please help me as well ? 

Hi @NEGAR JALALIAN  sure happy to help.

You should install Automation for Jira plug-in first. {from code barell}.

Then I can help you configuring an automation rule is very graphic, easy and user-no programmer-friendly.
