JSM: Copying a Forms field populated with a data connection to an existing customfield

Fabian Lim Community Leader Mar 09, 2022

We are trying to use a Form field that is populated to a data connection to a Jira custom field.

The Forms field looks as follows:


Ideally, we thought we could copy this value to an existing custom field, but we get the following error:


Now, the question is is there a script or post function where we can strip the value of the forms field and copy it to an existing custom field? Looks like Automation doesn't have any options at this point.

Hi @Fabian Lim 

This is something we've been discussing. I can't share any timelines, but it's on the roadmap.

Can't speak to a script that would get you what you need, but will report back if I find something that could help.

Thanks for the update.

Came poking around looking for the same functionality. This would be a fantastic feature to have and would make Forms much more powerful.

Hi @Peter Preston is there any feature issue for this?

@Muhammet Ayal do you mean a feature request ticket? Not that I know of right now. I've discussed this functionality with the product team, but don't have any updates to share. 

Hi @Peter Preston 

Any news about being able to copy the value of a form field to a custom field? That would be great...Forms does and doesn't work because we don't get the information for indicators for example.

@Karoline Rezende Ramos no news yet.

Any workarounds someone can think of ?
