Using automations to link an item in one board with a subitem in another


I am facing an issue with automatically linking two boards, where the structure does not align 100 %. On one board we use subitems to sort tasks, and on the other we use the primary items.

What I want to do is use this automation to automatically create a main item in the other board, and link it to a subitem on the current board:


Example: When subitem Status 1 changes to Ready create an item in other board and connect to this board with subitem column.

However, when I set up the automation I only get to pick from columns on the primary items - not the subitem.

This seems like an arbitrary gap in the automation’s logic, in my opinion. Is this something that is being looked at?


A few months later, and I still am looking for some support/a workaround here:

Is it (or will it at some point be) possible to automatically create an item in one board and connect it to a subitem in another board?

Currently I can’t find any automations that will let me chose the Connect Board-column I have created for my subitems - I only see this one main item column:
