Using automation to copy custom date field (WBS Gantt) from parent issue



Using Jira Cloud with the plugin WBS Gantt-chart for Jira.

I need that sub-tasks, when created, will have the WBS Gantt field "Start Date" and "Finish Date" the same as the parent task.

The automation starts with:

When: Issue created

Issue fields condition: Issue type equals sub-task

Branch rule: Current issue

Edit issue: Choose fields "Start date (WBS Gantt-Chart)"

In the Edit issue fields, I tried a few combinations for the operations process, including using {{issue.parent.customfield_XXXXX.value}}, {{issue.parent.Name of Custom Field.value}}, and even the "Copy Start date (WBS Gantt-Chart) from Current issue".

In all of the options, the automation didn't update the sub-task fields as expected.

The log reports that in some of the cases it ran without any error.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @Rodrigo Bammann ,

I think you don't need ".value". Can you try without ".value"?

Thanks, @Joy Chiu, that did the trick!
