Copy value from multiple linked issues to parent issue

I have one issues linked to multiple issues having different values in same field. I am looking for combining the values of multiple linked field into one and copy to the parent issue.


Any solution ??

I think your question is not clear enough.


You have to specify when the values are to be copied/combined. This could be whenever one of the values changes, by choosing a menu item, etc. You have options and what to implement depends on your requirement/decision.

After that you will need to write some code to copy/combine the linked values. You can get the linked issues for the "original" issue or the subtasks and then "combine" the values and set the value in the "original" issue.


I want to copy values either on workflow transition or schedule a daily script in bamboo to update copy/update field values. Putting some script in workflow transition is a better option.
