Copy custom field values using Built In Scripts is not working

I created a Filter to list down the issues in which I want to copy the values from a Issue Picker Custom Field Type to Multiple Issue Picker (created via Script Runner).

Built In scripts --> Copy custom field values

On preview, I am able to view this message:

Will operate on 2 issue(s) from the Copy Custom Fields filter....
Copying source field JIRA Project Mapping to target field Jira Project Issue Picker.

But on Run:

0 issue(s) modified.

The built-in copy script can only handle simple cases where the type of data in the fields is similar enough.  A single issue picker going to a multiple issue picker is not supported.

You will need to write your own bit of code to convert the data you extracted from the single picker field to the multiple-picker type.

The Issue Picker Custom Field Type holds multiple values as well. 

Is it conflicting because one is custom field issue picker and the other is scripted field issue picker.

As of now, I have used the import .csv file to upload the values.

You didn't say which issue picker app you were using, so I took a guess.  Either way, the objects in the two fields are not compatible.
