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

Hello All,

As I understand copying a Forms field populated with a data connection to an existing custom field(by linking) is not possible at the moment.

Someone can think of a workaround ? maybe using automation or script ?

or even using an API to get the data connection field value and push it to custom field ?

Thanks !

Sure @John Funk 

I'm using Form field with data connection using API,

so I now have a dropdown field linked to external source of values.
this part works perfectly.

Now my problem is that I want to use the user choice for this field(after submit)

I need to save it to custom field somehow to use it later in the process.

Usually when it is not a data connection enabled in can use 'Link to Jira field'

but it docent allow me to do that 'A field cant be linked to both a Jira field and data connection'

so I'm trying to think of a workaround to make it happen show how.

Added some images.


Thanks!data connection error.pngdata connection.png

Hi Tal,

I am not exactly following your question. Can you provide more details or a step-by-step what you are trying to do and what you hope to see?

Sorry but that sounds like something you need to contact Atlassian Support with.
