How to copy several fields in to Description field?

Hi, 

Im configuring a new project and need to do some automation or post-function that allow me to copy several values from differents custom fields in to "Description" field.

I've tried with JMWE plugin but it seems don't allow to copy several fields without overwritting the existing value.

Any tips to do it?

Thanks all

Best Regards

Hi @Oscar Jareño Gordo 

you can do this with JMWE's Set Issue Fields post-function, using a value like:

{{issue.fields.description}}
{{issue.fields.firstField}}
{{issue.fields.secondField}}

Hi Oscar - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can do that with Automation for Jira. When updating the Description field use {{issue.description}} {{issue.First Field}} {{issue.Second Field}} etc. Where first field and second field are the exact names of your custom fields.

Hi @John Funk ,

It works!

Thank you very much
