Assign Security level Postfunction for Security Levels having same name in 2 different projects


I have the following scenario:

Project 1: Has its own Issue Security Scheme with Security Levels: AAA, BBB, CCC

Project 2: Has its own Issue Security Scheme with Security Levels: BBB, DDD, EEE

Now for Project 1, in the create transition I need to set the Security Level based upon value selected in a Custom Select List. This list has options AAA, BBB, CCC, DDD, EEE

If I select BBB in the options, I get an error saying 'Unable to copy value of CustomerField to 'Security Level'

If I select AAA in the option, then the security level is correctly set.

My question - Even if the 2 projects use different Security Schemes, why would the same security level name give problem to the postfunction?

I am using the 'Misc Workflow Extensions' v 3.6.1 plugin's 'Copy Value from Field to Field' postfunction.

Defect with the postfunction?

So you are using the "Copy value from field to field" post-function to copy from a Select List custom field to the "Issue Security" field, correct?

In that case, I believe it is indeed a limitation of the post-function, which should look for the security level based not only on the name (a string), but also on the Security scheme applicable to the current issue.

Can you raise a support request on our support system (see



This is indeed an issue in JMWE, and it will be fixed in version 3.7.0. See
