Auto fill the field based on information from a issue-linked

I have a issuetype named Specification.

This issue type has a field named category, that can be: OP1, OP2, OP3.


I have another issue-type named BUG.

BUG has a mandatory field that set the SPECIFICATION impacted.

BUG has a field named Category (hide), that I would like to be filled automatic basead on information from the Specification - field Category, using the workflow post-function.

Its necessary to mitigate the possibilite to set the wrong category on BUG.

The Bug Category always need to be the same that the Specification Category informed.
