Clear field value after or while MOVE process

Hello everybody,

is it possible, to clear a value of a customfield after the move?

If yes, can someone how?

For my company this is a very special case and very urgent but I don't know how to make it in Jira.

We are using Jira 6.

Can someone help me and send me information about that?

Kind Regards

You could probably implement a listener with the Script Runner plugin ( that catches the move event and then clear the value of that specific custom field.

The Script Runner has great documentation so check it out!

you need to develop listener to clear data while doing move operation!!

check the following doc to know how to develop listener

Hi Prasad,

Is it possible to change system default and custom field values, if it possible can you share the hints in the code.
