I am using JMWE and have tried the following:
could you please help?
And this is the Create transition of the sub-tasks workflow, right? Then it should work. But don't forget the Component/s field will only be set _after_ the sub-task is created, not on the creation screen. And it might take a few seconds for the value to appear.
Hi, this is on the create of the main workflow (where the Issue Types are Story, Bug, Epic, Sub-task), I also tried creating a separate workflow at some point with a simple create for subtasks but still it didn't work, maybe I got something wrong there?
-- should I clone the main workflow, create the post function and update the Issue Types of this to only include Sub-tasks?
No. The parent and subtask can follow the same workflow and your configuration should work. Make sure you have published the workflow. If they follow a different workflow then make sure you place this post-function on the "Create" transition of the subtask workflow. If you still cannot fix it please raise a ticket with us here https://innovalog.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/10
Thank you! still no luck. I have published the workflow and my main workflow has the post function added to it (as shown above, I also tried moving the post function to the end but no difference). I will create a ticket. Do you know roughly how long i will have to wait? Thanks
Ok I think the problem is that the component field in the subtask is compulsory as I just tested the 'assign to reporter' post function and it successfully assigned my new sub-task to me... so perhaps I should remove the component field as compulsory from the sub-task. Any idea how to do that? I guess I need another schema for the fields? thanks
Well if the component/s was mandatory you will not even be allowed to create the ticket without providing the component. So the chance of that being the reason is zero.
Add a delay of a few seconds to the Copy field value from parent post-function. Save the post-function. Publish the workflow and retry. Refresh the subtask and see the results.
You can create the support request now. I will take care of it. Please enable "DEBUG" log level in JMWE logs page (https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/JMWEC/pages/142018631/JMWE+logs#JMWElogs-Logginglevel) of your instance, create a subtask and share the issue key with us over the support request.
are you on Jira Server or Cloud? Also, can you share the post-function configuration? From the way you described it ("Source issue is the parent, destination the sub-task option"), it doesn't look like a JMWE post-function.
