Copy value from dropdown field to number field

Magesh Jothi Aug 18, 2014

Hi,

I am trying to copy value from a custom dropdown field to a custom number field in JIRA. The value should be copied everytime when the source field is updated.

Can you please let me know how to do that?

FYI: I am new to JIRA administation.

The original purpose is, we have a story points field as dropdown which is not displayed in the Agile Board's Estimation Statistics, which works only for Numeric Fields.

So idea is having two fields and when the dropdown is updated the value will be copied to the Numeric Field.

The easiest way is to write a script listener that will do that job if the field is updated.

Hi All,

I completely understand this requirement, since any Burndown Chart and Velocity calculation is useless as long as anyone can enter any value. This is why we created the brand new App "StoryPoints" for Jira Server.

It is dedicated to Fibonacci Estimation but supports any Selection Options via easy administration.

For details see here.

Cheers
