Jira Automation Rule to Copy 'Reporter' value from epic to children issues

Gefrey Manohar June 1, 2022


I currently have a rule set up via automation to copy the 'Reporter' field value from an epic to its children issues when new children issues are created. I want to keep this rule but also want a new automation rule to change the 'reporter' value for all children issues (previously created/existing under an epic) when it is updated for the parent epic. The current rule only works for newly created children issues.

Can you help me with this? 

Screenshot below is the current rule I have set up.

Hi @Gefrey Manohar,

You can create the following new rule:


Make sure to untick "Only include issues that have changed since the last time this rule executed" in the branch to update all issues in epic:


Hope this helps!
