Automatically inherit values from scripted field to select list field

Hi All,

I'm looking for the best way to inherit values from scripted field (gets a fixed set of certain values) to Select List (Single Choice) field that has the same set of values. These two fields are in the same project and the same issue type.

We tried to work it out through the Post functions in the workflow with "Copy Value From Other Field Function" but unfortunately in this case it's behavior is inconsistent.


Thank you in advance.

Scripted fields are more about display than containing full field objects, so you can't copy their results in many cases.  Select lists are one case - they hold "options", but scripted fields only have text.

You need to duplicate the logic behind the scripted field and write the proper field objects back in a post-function.
