That script is useful, thanks
However, I've tried to build on and add a level above the Epic based on Advanced Roadmaps "Parent Link"
The hierarchy is : Feature > Epic > Standard issue > Sub-task
The Epic is setup/ updated correctly but not the standard issue and the Sub-task levels
Can you please explain how to include 1 or more levels above the Epic based on Advanced Roadmaps "Parent Link" ?
The Parent Link field that is provided by Advanced Roadmaps is not the same as the Parent > Child relationship that is inherent between Jira Stories and Sub-Tasks. It is easy to confuse this, so maybe your original script is not accessing the Parent Link field.
Do your Standard Issues and Subtasks have the actual field present on their screens?
Is this a Listener? What event does your script execute on?
Thanks for your feedback
I'm aware of it :) That is why I couldn't find a way to build that script correctly !
I'm only using the "Parent Link" from Advanced Roadmaps to link Epics to their Parent Features. As for the rest, I'm using the standard Parent/Child relationship natively provided by Jira
I would like to use it as a Listener in the 1st place. This should be fired on the create and update events
Do you have the plugin Jira Misc. Workflow Extensions (JMWE) by any chance? If so, you could accomplish what you're after without code.
I am on Jira Data Center which is similar but not exactly the same as Jira Server. That said, you'll probably need a unique listener for each event, issue created & issue updated.
I'd start by verifying that your standard issues and sub-tasks have been added to your ARM Hierarchy configuration.
Below is a script that check's both the parent link field and the linked issue's field to copy a field value from the existing parent issue to a newly created child Issue, when a new issue is created. Make sure that you associate a parent issue by filling in the parent link field on the Create Issue Screen. I believe it should also work for the story > sub-task relationship too. Replace <YOURFIELD> with your field.
