How do I create stories in a different project from the parent epic?

I have a trigger that creates multiple stories when an epic is created with a certain label. I want these stories to be created in a different project, depending on what was selected in the parent epic's 'Squad' field. How do I do this?

Hi Vanessa - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Have you started creating the rule yet? Is so, can you share what you have?

If not, you can take a look at this info to get started:

There are two types of automation:

  • Global: In the Free version, you get 100 executions per product, per month
  • Project: In all versions, you get unlimited executions per month

Automation Basics:

You can do this via global rules to apply to all projects also. You'll need to be a Jira Admin/Site Admin, go to Jira Settings > System > Automation Rules (left-hand menu).

For more on using Automation For Jira see these help pages.

Essentially, you will start with an Issue Created trigger.

Then add conditions for issue type = Epic and label = ABC

Then do an If/Else Block condition for each of the Squads. After each If, add a new action to Create Issue. There you can choose whatever project and fields you like. 

Hi John,

I started with the Issue Created trigger and the conditions for the Epic and Label, but I got stuck after that. I did as you suggested with the If/Else block condition and it now works a treat!

Thank you!
