Basically I want to create the following rule:
1) Manual trigger of the parent ticket
2) Clone of the triggered ticket without subtasks (but with attachments)
3) Check for unclosed sub-tasks in the triggered ticket
4) Movement of unclosed sub-tasks from triggered ticket to cloned ticket
Right now, I'm able to automate step 1, step 2 (but having issues with cloning attachments), step 3. And I have no idea how to perform step 4.
Thanks in advance!
So we don't support cloning attachments in cloud just yet (see https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-162) so this wont be possible yet in Cloud. In server there's an option to copy attachments now, but this wont help here.
Unfortunately cloning sub-tasks to another parent issue is also something we don't support yet for step 4 since there's no way yet to select a new parent issue when cloning sub-task issue types: https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-906
We've got quite a few higher priority items in our backlog at the moment so it will be a while before we can get to this, but we'll let you know when we get a chance to work on this.
I'd like to provide some feedback on this feature request.'
This makes a tremendous amount of sense to me.
If you are cloning sub-tasks from a "template" issue when, let's say, you're creating an issue of the same "type", you would want to clone the sub-tasks into your trigger issue. Not create even more sub-tasks with the same exact contents in the original "template" issue.
I tried adding the following logic at clone time:
And I got the error "Issue type is a sub-task but parent issue key or id not specified."
I tried also adding the above logic to edit the created issues post-create within the same branch rule, but then I got the error:
"Unknown fields set during edit, they may be unavailable for the project/type. Check your custom field configuration. Fields ignored -
What's the right way to do this? I don't want or need the ability to clone sub-tasks to a new project. But there has to be a way to clone sub-tasks to sit under an issue other than the "template" issue from which I'm cloning.
