Insight Automation - Can I update an object's attribute with the attribute of an Inbound reference?


Hello everyone,

I'm currently trying to create automation that will update object A's attribute with the attribute value of the Inbound Referenced Object B.


Instance : Jira Data Center

Object Types In question: Seat and Employee

Seat object attribute = Filled by Employee

Employee object attribute = Fills Seat


Example Case :

- Create two new objects of object type employee titled, John Doe, and of object type seat, titled Seat 4.

-Set John Doe's "Fills Seat" attribute to Seat 4. 

-Automation should then update Seat 4's "Filled by Employee" attribute to John Doe.

- (This automation should also work vice-versa if Seat 4's "Filled by Employee" attribute was entered first)


I've hit a wall and would appreciate any ideas or advice with this problem.

Having the same doubts here. I tried to create an automation that looks in to the inbound reference objects for the values, without any luck
