Does Automation for JIRA works with Portfolio for JIRA

I would like to know if we can automate workflows over the different parent-child links we create with portfolio for JIRA.

So more levels than the standard JIRA levels subtask - story - epic.

so  for instance we have a capability above the epic level, can I transfer this capability automatically to "in progress" as soon as the epic is "in progress" which is triggered by a story that is set to "in progress"

Hi Ariane,

Thanks for getting in touch. Yes this is possible, it isn't as obvious as dealing with the standard hierarchy though.  Your rule would look like this.

* Trigger: Issue Transitioned
* Issue Condition: Issue is Epic & Status is in Progress
* Related Issue Branch (JQL): "key = {{issue.Parent Link}}"
** Transition Action: Copy from trigger issue

If you get stuck please get in contact with us at support:

Hope that helps!


Note that the smart-value may have changed.  

key = {{issue.Parent}}
