I'm trying to create a URL that will populate a custom field. The URL remains static except for a variable that is contained within another custom field in the issue.
I'm able to create url properly so that it shows in the log for the rule, however, in usage, the rule will fail with "Operation value must be a string". Example of what I've used:
Sure, the field type is "URL".
Not sure I fully understand the relationship question... but the URL Custom Field (Custom Field 2 - destination) is a custom field in the issue where as Custom Field 1 (source) is in the parent.
Currently, the rule itself is on issue create. The only condition is that is not an Epic or Story. The Epic or Story would contain the information as the parent. I'm currently able to successfully copy the field down to the child from the parent issue when it's going from the custom field 1 to custom field 1 place holders (ie. ChildIssue.CustomField1 is sourced by ParentIssue.CustomField1 on creation). The rub is when I'm trying to create the URL. I'm not sure if there is some special way since it's a "URL" type field instead of a "string" but the error states it's expecting a string...
I've had a bit of a play around with the URL custom field and copying values from the parent, and everything seems to be behaving as expected.
It might be worth reaching out to our support team as it is possibly something specific to your setup. We can then have a closer look at your rule and the logs to see what might be happening.
