Copy value from one custom filed to another when the value of the first custom field is changed

Hi All,


We need to copy the value from CF 1 to CF 2 as soon as the CF 1 value is changed.  Adding a post function for copying the values does not meet our needs. Can this be done with a script?

Hey @Nadica Gaber,

I agree that the POST function doesn't really give you the ideal solution you're looking for.

This can definitely be done with a script, and I'd recommend an add-on like Power Scripts.

We've put together a quick tutorial video showing exactly how to copy a field value from one field to another as soon as the first field's value is changed. You can even copy and paste the SIL script to see how it works.

Hope this helps!

Which plugin do you have to write a script? If you have Adaptivist Scriptrunner, you could write a listener. The listener would catch the update issue event and checked if the required field changed. If it ischanged, then you could change the other field.

Read more information about listeners here:

But you are not limited to Adaptivist scriptrunner, there are must be other plugins with such functionality
