We currently have 2 projects that have some dependencies. I would like to create an automation rule so that if an issue is linked with a ticket from another project, it will add a specific label to the ticket.
Ex. Project ABC and Project DEF
Ticket ABC-1 is updated to be linked with ticket DEF-1, I now want ABC-1 to have a label for project DEF to identify that it is related to that project.
I tried creating a few different rules but so far none seem to work. I managed to get it to work on ticket creation but I want it to happen when a link is added. Is there a way to do this?
Hi Rachel - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
I don't think you are going to be able to do it if the only thing getting updated is that there is a new link created. Automation does not have a rule type for when the Linked Issue field is updated.
And out of curiosity, why are you adding a label to show they are linked when you already have the link established?
Thanks for the information! And for the welcome :)
I'm not really looking for a label to show they have a link but a label to show they are related to the other project, so I was thinking it could know that by looking at the link and seeing that the linked issue comes from this other project.
We have separate teams working on the different projects, one project has many many "branches" of the product and one project is more focused so on the "busier" project they want to identify the tickets that are related to this other project so they can be prioritized accordingly among all the other backlog items currently hiding them. I was looking for an easy way to auto-flag them as being related but maybe it's not possible right now, may just have to remember to label them one by one for now. Let me know if you have any other suggestions.
I found out that the good folks with Automation For Jira have this on their roadmap to provide. You can follow along here:
You could probably auto connect them with a rule if you prompt them to enter some information at create. That won't work for an Update. But maybe make them do the link at create somehow?
HI John, I have a similar issue where I want a linked card in one project to be notated and the assignee be sent a message when another card it is linked to in a different project is completed. How would I do this? I can create the automation to do all of this, except it only seems to work on cards that are linked within the same project and not 2 different projects.
