Example: Add all assignees of certain sub-task types to a "Multi-User Picker" custom field

I'm trying to copy the assignee from only a specific type of sub-task to a multi-user field on the parent ticket. There could be any number of the specific type of sub-tasks (0-999) as well.

Can this function handle this logic?

I have an additional feature I'm trying to add that is somewhat related as well. For each of a certain type of sub-task, there is a start date field and an end date field. I want to copy the earliest of all the start dates and the latest of all the end dates to a start date field and end date field on the parent ticket.


I explain how to implement first functionality: Let's suppose we have a Multi User Picker custom field called "Team", and we want to select on that field all the assignees of sub-tasks of type "QA Sub-task".

We use post-function Read fields from linked issues or sub-tasks with the following configuration:


We use post-function Copy a parsed text to a field with the following configuration:



Note that:

  • We use prefix '+' in order to add all users contained in field "Ephemeral string 1". If we used prefix '-' instead, we would¬†remove¬†those users. If we didn't use any prefix, we simply would replace currently selected users in field "Team" by those contained in field "Ephemeral string 1"

  • %{00061}¬†is field code for virtual field "Ephemeral string 1"

Once configured, transition would look like this:




I explain now how to implement second functionality (third functionality is obvious once explained second one): Let's suppose we want to overwrite Date Picker custom field "Start Date" with the earliest value of that field in all sub-tasks of type "QA Sub-task", or doing nothing in case parent issue contains an earlier value than its sub-tasks do.

We use post-function Read fields from linked issues or sub-tasks with the following configuration:



Once configured, transition will look like this:
