epic link in issue creation phase

Trying to inherit custom field values from epic to issues below (tasks/stories) required fields.


Earlier we have used post function to fill fields if are empty, but now we need to prefill values before Create is pressed as fields are required. 

Tried to use script runner behavior, but did not manage to catch epic link in "Create issue in epic view". 

Is there way to do this or any workaround ideas how to get values in place ?

HI Renni,

I think behavior should work in this case, can you share the code?



sure, last version of code is : 

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField;

def Field= getFieldById("customfield_16215"); //Cost centres
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(Field.getFieldId())

CustomField epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link')
def epic = underlyingIssue.getCustomFieldValue(epicLink) as Issue;

if (!Field) {

Try to attach the behavior to the Epic Link field and use

def epicLink=getFieldById(getFieldChanged())

instead of 

CustomField epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link')

Im relatively new with behavior - how to attach behavior and field ? 

just replace the line did not work 



@Renni Verho fron your screen shot I see you add behavior as initialiser

go to fields section-> add field->epic link->add->add server-side script

put the code there instead
