Behaviour change child value of custom field

How do I customize the behavior to change the value of a child custom field when the value of the parent field changes? I am referring to a custom issue field for a sub issue.
Thanks in advance!

Hi @Павел Русаков , 

You wish to keep custom fields in sync between task and it's sub-tasks?

You could create a rue with Automation for Jira where you can watch updates/ transitions / create of the parent issues, and then branch the rule to the sub-tasks where you copy the CF value of the trigger issue to the CF's of the sub-tasks. 

Watching updates on a certain field alone isn't possible, so you need to watch updates on the entire issue. 

Hope this helps!

Yes, i wish.

Thank you for the answer! I tryed it, but it is functional only for Automation for Jira - Server PRO. My Automation for Jira - Server  is Lite.

Automation for Jira - Server PRO is  paid.

Hi @Павел Русаков , 

you are right, I should have mentioned it was only available on PRO. 

There are other possibilities (like writing your own script with scriptrunner, or using a JSU post function, or using Elements copy and sync to keep the fields synched) but I don't think this can be done without the use of a paid app. 

Perhaps it might be worth looking into the pro version if you like these kinds of functionality. 

Sorry I don't have better news ;)

Thanks for the recommendation @Tessa Tuteleers !

@Павел Русаков If you want to try your use case with Elements Copy & Sync, you can set up a field mapping to synchronize just the custom fields you want.
