πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ Mirror Labels to Child - GitHub Action

A GitHub Action that mirrors labels from a parent issue to it's children issues πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦. The action supports the child keywords supported by actions-playground - child #<issue_number>, child to #<issue_number>, child of #<issue_number>. The child <owner>/<repo>#<issue_number> syntax is also supported for cross repo relationships.

How It Works

This GitHub Action runs when an issues event webhook is fired in your GitHub repo. The action checks if there is a parent / child relationship between the issue and another issue. If so, the action mirrors labels from the parent issue to the child issue.

Notes:

  • If a label is removed from a parent issue, the label is is not removed from the child issue.
  • If a label is added to the parent issue, it will be applied to the child issue the next time the child is edited.
  • If a child has multiple parents, only the lables from the child's first parent are mirrored to the child.

Examples

Example of parent issue with labels: GitHub Logo
