Automation set up - to copy Custom Field to System field on workflow transition.

I have two version fields.

1. One is custom field - API generates custom field for name for this field. So, API is what enters the name of the generated name here.  Field Name = Cus Auto Version

This custom field is on all 3 projects used here.

2. Two is Fix Version needs to be populated with same data from Cus Auto Version field automatically on transition to may be done or in progress.


The issue is when transitions goes to in progress, I want a check done to auto populate the Fix Version field with data from  Cus Auto Version field.

Summary then.

Copy data from one field to the other field on transition of status in workflow.

Hi @Anthony and welcome to Community!

Which type of custom field is "Cus Auto Version"? If it is a version picker, you should be able to copy the value from one field to another using the following automation:


Hope this helps,

The Cus Auto Version is a text based field and not a version picker please.

Thanks for your input indeed.

Ok, then I guess you could add a "Create version" action to create the version first and then set the Fix version:


I can't try it out right now, you may need to add a "Re-fetch data issue" action in-between.

Hi Manon, you got it slightly wrong, the issue is not the Custom field at all, this has already been taken care of by the APi loading the version  number in to the custom field.


Am just looking at copying the same information across the  Fix Version field on transition with the  same data information, am not creating a new version. May be it is creating a Fix version with an already available information so to speak.

Summary again.

Cus Auto Version is a field (text based) Api loads this with a version Id.

I just need this copied to Fix version on transition of status to in progress of the same Jira Issue.
