For clarification, I have Jira Cloud. I am trying to create an automation that copies a custom field called "Relative Control Weighting (1-10)" (customfield_10059) from the linked issue into a different custom field called "Control Weighting Score" (customfield_10079) in the current issue.
The source field is a Dropdown type. The destination field is a text type (since I found you cannot do this on a dropdown type)
After reading up on this link, I have:
When: Issue Linked - Type: Related to
Then: Edit issue field - Advanced
The automation runs, but does not copy the source field to the destination field. In fact, I see nothing has changed. The audit logs show SUCCESS:
Issues edited successfully
Which is weird because ESS-209 is the issue that I am linking, and from which I want to copy the custom field. So it should not be editing ESS-209.
I have also tried using:
"Control Weighting Score": "123"
just to try to statically set the value to 123, but it does nothing.
