Hi Bhavin,

You can do this with Automation for Jira. Create a Rule for when  F0 is updated).

Then add a new action for Edit Issue.

Then in the Set value for F3, put this code:

{{issue.F1}}, {{issue.F2}}

Thanks for reply....

can you please help me how can I clear the fields through automation?

Actually I want to clear the field after copy the field's value. I tried to leave it blank but it does not work.

Can you share the rule that you have so far?

Hi @Bhavin Acharya

on automation action "Edit issue" you should be presented (also by default) with the option "This field will be cleared".

So if you do not order anything special the field will be cleared.


However, I understood it not fully for your use case. Assuming you would clear F3 your work would be senseless/destroyed (as the field value gets overwritten after being filled out - probably I did just not understand the scenario) - but probably you meant to clear F1 or F2 ... or it was another use case.
The basic function works as outlined above, though.
