I am attempting to trigger a rule when a subtask is created. Is this not possible?

We are having an issue where components are being left blank when a subtask is created. We'd like to automatically set to match the parent when the subtask is created.

Hi Mary - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

See the example below with an Issue Created trigger and a Condition for JQL for a subtask Issue type. Then add a new action for Edit Issue and set the value of the Component.

Hi John,

Did you intend to attach an example? I cannot see one.

Here's what I started with - but my problem is that the rule is never triggered when I create a subtask (I do this from the details of a story - selecting More->Create Sub-task). When a story is created it will send the email but obviously doesn't do the rest since it's an issue being created and not the subtask.
