Am looking for a way to automatically change the issue type if I add a component.
For example, if I edit an issue of type "A" and add a component "B", I would like the issue type to change to "B" on save.
I am aware of the complexity due to issues having different workflows with different statuses.
Am open to work around suggestions :)
Thank you very much in advance.
So this would only work, if the source & target issue type use the *same* Jira Workflow. If that's the case, then you should simply be able to use our 'Edit issue' action and select the 'Issue type' field from the available fields.
Your rule would looks something like this:
If the issue types are using two different workflows though, then this wont work. This requires a multi-step workflow migration (potentially requiring user input along the way), which isn't feasible to do in an automation rule.
Hope that helps!
