Hello, 

As long as I'm understanding your use case, I believe this script will work for you. :)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.optionsManager

def multiSelect = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Users")

def users = multiSelect.getValue(event.issue)

def value = []
users.each{
value.push(it.displayName)
}

def textField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(event.issue).find {it.name == "Field"}
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
textField.updateValue(null, event.issue, new ModifiedValue(event.issue.getCustomFieldValue(textField), value as String),changeHolder)

 You'll need to make this a Script Listener and have it listen on the events you want to check for. For example, I used the 'Issue Updated' and 'Issue Created' events.

Let me know if you have any further questions!
