Use Case

This workflow helps you manage the assignment of tasks and subtasks.

Rules

This workflow includes two rules.

Inherit parent Assignee to subtasks

This rule checks a subtask when it is linked to a parent task. If the subtask is not assigned, the issue is assigned to the assignee of the parent task.

rule Inherit parent Assignee to subtasks when parent for.added.isNotEmpty { for each subtask in parent for.added { if (subtask.Assignee == null) { subtask.Assignee = Assignee; } } }

Update subtasks Assignee on parent Assignee changing

The next rule checks for subtasks when an issue is assigned to another user.

  • If the subtasks are in an active project, the assignee for each subtask is set to the assignee of the parent task.
  • If the subtasks are in an archived project, they are ignored.
rule Update subtasks Assignee on parent Assignee changing when Assignee.changed { for each subtask in parent for { if (subtask.project.isArchived()) { continue; } if (subtask.Assignee == Assignee.oldValue) { subtask.Assignee = Assignee; } } }
