Jira Behaviors - copying date field and formatting issue using script runner behaviors


i am trying to copy value from Epic To Story when the user click on the issues in epic button using the jira script runner Behaviours .

i manage to copy custom field select list field , due date and assignee.


i have a problem copy links issue field created by the easy links add-on.

the links are created on the single / multiple links custom field as Issues.

the closest solution i found is to use this method : 

// Get a pointer to the Linked Issues Text Area
def linkedIssuesCF = getFieldById("issuelinks")

// Get a pointer to the Issue Links Field
def issueLinksCF = getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype")

//Set the field to the Relateted Test Object link type
issueLinksCF.setFormValue("Related Test Object") 

its copy the value of the 1 issue links to the issue links system field,

this solution is not good for me because i need to copy multiple field , and this solution is copying only 1 field , another problem is the links issues system field cant be present in the story create screen.


i use this code :

the parent issue is the issue listed in the story epic link.


CustomField customFieldTeamResponsible = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Team Responsible")

        String customFieldValueTeamResponsible = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldTeamResponsible)

//getting the field i cant to set the value on the story

def FormField cu = getFieldById(customfield_12321);

                cu.setFormValue(customFieldValueTeamResponsible );


i also tried to use 

Issue customFieldValueTeamResponsible = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldTeamResponsible)

in order to get the value as Issue , but no success.

i can see the at the log that the customFieldValueTeamResponsible  value is an issue key from the custom field on the Epic.

The following will output the date picker date for the current date using the preference for the current user.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.datetime.DateTimeFormatterFactory
import com.atlassian.jira.datetime.DateTimeStyle

def formatterFactory = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(DateTimeFormatterFactory.class)
def localDatePickerFormatter = formatterFactory.formatter().forLoggedInUser().withStyle(DateTimeStyle.DATE_PICKER)
localDatePickerFormatter.format(new Date())
