I have an automation that takes some data from the epic (Next-Gen) of a task and performs some logic. The problem is that I cannot find a way to have this automation triggered when the Epic is set or edited.
The "Field value changed" doesn't contain anything related to the parent, and the generic "Issue Updated" doesn't trigger either.
Please let me know if there is any other way to achieve it.
Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!
I'm not sure if I understood correctly what do you need the automation to change.
It's possible to set an automation to run when an Epic is assigned, but I need more details about the rest of the automation.
Can you please share with us a screenshot of the automation or more details about what the automation should do?
Thank you for the details, Maurizio.
Testing on my local site, I didn't find any trigger to run when the epic link is updated.
The next-gen projects don't have the field Epic Link, so even using smart values for the automation, it won't work for next-gen.
There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Hello @Nick Maskell,
Thank you for reaching out to Community and for mentioning that the issue still persists.
Talking to my teammates and also testing on my local site, the Automation doesn’t trigger to edit “Epic Link”.
Also, for the trigger “Field value changed” it doesn’t show the Epic link, only other Epic fields that are not available in next-gen.
There is a bug related to this issue:
