Copy a custom field

Is there a simple way to copy a custom field. I have a cascading custom field I would like to copy and alter a little different from the original. I have a lot of fields in the cascading filed and do not want to redo all of them over again.

Groovy and Script Runner plugins have a builtin script to copy custom fields. Copying custom fields would be a great feature to add as a builtin feature of JIRA.

I'm looking to have the Edit Option "values" populated, not the Custom Field "values" themselves. We have Scriptrunner, tried that script. I've noticed if I import a csv into Jira the Edit Options for a field do get populated but I'm not ready to import data yet. And If I did import and didn't have one of every state in my import data, I wouldn't have all of the 50 states in my Edit Options, just those that were imported.

I want a "Copy" under the Gear along with "Configure, Edit, Screens, Delete" in the Custom Fields page!

Hello Ryan,

We are close to release a beta version of our plugin which will allow to perform this kind of operation. For now it will be for free so you can check it out. I will give you some info when it will be released.

I need to create 7-8 "State" select lists within the same project...don't want to enter AK, click, wait, AZ, click wait, 10 minutes later ...VT, click wait. Repeat 7 more times..3 hours later. Please hurry!
