I'm pretty new to the whole Jira development.
I'm trying to repopulate the Subtask summary with it's parent's summary on creation.
I've read through old threads but could not set up a working workflow.
Should the script be added as a post function script or as a listener script ?
Hi @Kermit Swampson,
One solution is to add a Script Behavior that reads the parent value while creating sub-task and makes it read-only.
FormField parent = getFieldById("parentIssueId");
FormField summary = getFieldById("summary");
Issue parentIssue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(parent.getValue() as Long);
String parentSummary = parentIssue.getSummary();
Another option is to set it via script post-function on Create. There are lots of posts about it.
