Let Account field 'inherit from parent' of Epics

We generally have Epics that have the Account set correctly. Users then create regular Tasks within the Epic.

We would like for Tasks to have the same Account as their parent Epic by default. Rather than having the default be 'None', and then risk the user setting it incorrectly.

In fact, the Team field behaves exactly how we want: it inherits the Epic's value by default (see screenshot). It is just the Account field that doesn't.

    Well wouldn't it even make sense to set the account per project at highest level optionally?

    To refine this request: internally, the 'Team' field has the value 'INHERIT', which means "Whatever the Epic's value is". That is exactly the behaviour we'd like for Account: the ability to set its value to "Whatever the Epic's is".

    Hej :) how can I vote for this improvement? It is quite important to us especially after moving from Server to Cloud version. Best, Elisa

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the feedback! Yes this is something we are interested in improving, and I'm looking into if there are any technical obstacles, so at the moment I don't have an ETA for you. In the meantime, we have created, in collaboration with Adaptavist, a script that does exactly this which you may be interested in exploring. Of course this depends on you having Scriptrunner installed, so this solution may not work for you.


    Kind Regards,

    Hlynur Johnsen
