In JIRA I want to automatically add a developer to a sub-task, I think this can be done in two ways with:
However there is a problem with both ways. For the first method (which is preferable), the problem is that there is no option in JIRA Automation that support to automatically assign a sub-task to the same assignee as the parent task/story/bug. Or am I missing something?
The second method is problematic because in my case it's not the person who triggers the transition, but it's Bitbucket (by creating a branch or creating a Pull request). JIRA automation does not recognise this, and therefore doesn't assign a developer to the sub-task(s).
Do you have any suggestions on how I can setup JIRA Automation for this?
Thanks in advance!
This should be fairly easy to do and as you mention the first is preferable (and the only way to do it Automation for JIRA).
Currently, the Edit Action is more powerful than the Assign Action and it has an option to copy the assignee from the parent.
I'd create a rule that looks like:
This rule is made up of:
You can use Conditions to restrict what kind of issues this is done for.
Let us know how you go.
