how to copy custom field values from one to another using script runner?


I have one custom field i,e "subsystem" (Select List (single choice)) defined in my project and has many values configured in it.

Due to new requirement, I created one more new custom field i,e "Impacted subsystems list" (Select List (Multiple choice)) and I would like to map values from the subsystem to this new custom field using script runner - please suggest how to do this mapping.

whenever I add new value to 'subsystem' field to be appear in 'Impacted subsystems list' field too for JIRA issue users selection.

I am using JIRA version 6.7.16 and Script runner version

I'm not understanding the requirement here, it's one of two things.  Do you mean:

You want to copy values on issues from the subsystem field into the impacted-subsystems field


You have a list of options set for subsystem, and you want to add all the current options there into the list of options for impacted-subsystems field (a one-off configuration action)

I am looking for 2nd one ...

Ok, you'll need to write a one-off script to iterate over the options for the first field and add them to the second.

You'll need to get a FieldConfig for both fields, then use it on the first field to get the list of options.  You can then use optionManager.createOptions(fieldConfig, parentOptionId,  sequence, [options] to add the whole list in one go.

Have a look through for the starting point.
