How do I copy the value of an issue picker custom field to an issue to be created with Automation for Jira?

 

When transitioning an issue, I want to create an issue with an Automation for Jira rule. I also want to copy the value of an issue picker custom field from the trigger issue to the issue to be created.

How do I do this?

I've tried with 

 "customfield_14700": [{
"add": "{{triggerissue.customfield_14700.key}}"

but this is not working

Hi Marco,

I probably would use a variable to store the value of the picker, create the new issue and add the value of the variable.

Create variable e.g. "PickerValue" using this Smart value

{{issue.fields.customfield_14700.value}}

then create the new issue

and

edit issue field and add your variable there

{{PickerValue}}

Hope that helps,

Holger 

@Holger Rösch , thanks. it works with a so-called intermediate field.
