When trying to create automation and check for Epic name it doesnt work

Edmond Melkomian February 13, 2020

Trying to create an automation rule. This is a Next-gen project. 

I need to add subtasks automatically to a story when they created in a specific EPIC. 

I coded to check the (issue type = story) AND (epic name = <specific name>), but the audit log shows that the conditions didn't match. When I changed and looked for (issue type = story) AND (summary contains <keyword>) everything worked fine. 

Tried doing different things for the EPIC but it just doesn't match. I tried contains, and a bunch of other tests, searching for the id of the EPIC

Any suggestions out there? Is this a bug?

Hi @Edmond Melkomian 
While a bit late, you might go about this differently. Rather than trying to match the text of a specific Epic Name or Epic Summary, if you just want to match a specific epic, you could trigger off the JQL, which would be: parentEPIC = ticketnumber

@Cassius Rhue I opened a question with the Atlassian folks, but right now the workaround is to put a keyword, which is not ideal, because some other story in another EPIC if they add that keyword then this workaround doesn't work. 

But I don't know why this doesn't work. Let's see what anyone out there has come up with a solution or this issue.
