Copy Component from Parent to Subtask WITHOUT AddOns

Dear Community,


i spent quite a lot of time with Google to find out a solution for my resquest, without result.

I´d like to copy the value(s) of the "Components" Field in the ParentIssue to a Sub-Task when it´s created (not as WF-Postfunction, i wanna see it during creation).

What would you suggest? Could i do that by Scripting in the Description of the Componentsfield?


thx in advance for your help!

You can't do it without a plugin/add-ons, it's a open request in JIRA 's JIRA -

With add-ons like Script Runner it's piece of cake and via WF post-functions which you don't intend on using.

Thats bad.

Thank you for your fast reply.

@Tarun Sapra, what is the method with script runner?

Im trying to use the postfunction "Copy Value From Other Field", select Component from source field and Component in destination field

and then mark that i source field is from parent


it works with any field except component
