Can a story/task inherit details from epic?

Good day,


Please advise if a story can inherit certain field information from the linked epic?


Meaning once we capture the epic name on the story/task issue, certain information from the epic will automatically be captured on the story/task.

You could write a Scripted Field with the Script Runner Plugin for that - an example for displaying the Due Date of the Epic would be:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
def customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "Epic Link"}
def issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager();

Nice answer, though I will use ComponentAccessor instead of the Component Manager.
