Copy field values to Linked issues


We have created a link type named Relates where inward is Relates and Outward is relates to.

We would like to copy the field values of the issue to the Linked issue where the linke type is Relates ( Inward ).

Could you please help us to achieve this Requirement.

For your reference I have attached the Rule condition and Edit Issue actions which I have added.

Added condition for the Linked type "Relates", But in the Edit Issue action which option we have to choose for the linked issues condition.

Please help us to copy the field values from the linked issues.

Thank You

Hi @Madhu mullangi 

testing on my Cloud instance I found out it works best using a branch:


Please note that your mentioned custom field "WorkStream" in the above example correspond to "Backout plan".


For "Edit issue fields" the "Type of related issues" is "Linked issues" alongside with "relates to".
I saw that the link names differ a bit - please adapt it to your instance.

When I change the value for "Backout plan" it was also changed in the linked issue.

Please check if it works for your case - happy to hear if it worked.
