Use Automation for Jira to copy cascading field select into text field


I'm trying to use Automation for Jira to copy the selected option from cascading field into free text field. I have tried to use smart values like {{issue.MyCustomField.value}} or {{issue.MyCustomField.child.value}} but with no luck. I have tried both native functionality in Automation for Jira and using JSON, neither has worked.

According to documentation it should be possible to use ".value" with cascading field. Is there something wrong with how I specified my smart value?

Hi There Rafal, how are you doing?


Came across your question looking for something similar, and, hope I can help you.


I just was able to get the values this way:

Parent: {{issue.My Custom Field.value}}

Child: {{issue.My Custom Field.child.value}}


Best Regards
