Change custom field value when closing a sub task


I want to change the value of a custom field when the sub-task of the issue was closed.


Is there an option to do that?

You would need an add-on for it. What Jira version do you have (Cloud or Server)?

hi Alexey,

Thank you for your answer.

I have the Jira Server.

I think I succeed to implement this by using the post-function of the sub-task. 


I added the following post-functions to one of the transitions:

  1. The value of field Bundle Changes of the current issue will be set to Bundle with no changes (replacing existing values).
  2. The value(s) of field Bundle Changes will be copied to the issue's parent's field (replacing existing values).


First I configured the Bundle Changes field to be the expected value, and then I copied this value to the parent's field.


It this a good solution? there is maybe another way?
