Workflow constructor: field value inheritance from parent to child

Hi,

We are using YouTrack 2021.4.36872 and I am exploring a new feature - Workflow constructor.

As some basic flows are very easy to set, I am looking for a way to create a workflow that would ensure the inheritance of some values from parent to child.

Is there a current way how to do it via Constructor, or do we need to use an editor for this?

 

Example:

We have three issue types - Epic, User Story, Task

We have a custom field called "Team" which is available for all three issue types.

What I want to do is that if I create/update the User story (which is a subtask of epic), the "Team" field will be set (inherit) from the parent issue.

Thanks,

Vit

H! 

I'm Sergey from the YouTrack team. 

Is there a current way how to do it via Constructor, or do we need to use an editor for this?

Currently, it's not possible to do it via a workflow constructor. We keep working on constructor features and plan to introduce more functionality in the upcoming updates, including a possibility to update linked issues. I may suggest following our blog where we post all the major YouTrack updates so that you won't miss any.

Right now, it's possible to do it via a JavaScript editor. There's also a built-in workflow that you can use as a basis for your own. 

If any questions appear, let me know.
