Add field values to description when Create linked issue


We are creating linked issues through the "Create linked issue" options under "More". I would like to add some custom fields in the description. For example, we have a field for the merchant to enter a number, and I would like for this number to be included in the description, so that we do not have to paste it in manually.

Hi @Henriette Bossen,

One way of adding field values during the create transition is to use an add-on like Power Scripts.

Luckily enough, there's a short video tutorial that walks you through how to set this up generally.

And here's the sample code that was used, but feel free to customize to your needs:

string steps;

steps = "The following steps must occur in order to complete this task:\n";
steps += "# Make an Observation. Scientists are naturally curious about the world. ...\n";
steps += "# Form a Question. After making an interesting observation, a scientific mind itches to find out more about it. ...\n";
steps += "# Form a Hypothesis based on " + customfield_1234 + "\n";
steps += "# Conduct an Experiment. " + customfield_5678 + "\n";
steps += "# Analyse the Data and Draw a Conclusion.\n";

desc = steps;

Hope that helps!
