Copying custom field contents to standard fields as part of workflow

We have set up a JIRA project and workflow to manage requirements capture and assignment to a release.

In order to ensure clarity for the users the requirements project has a custom field called 'User Story'. Once the requirement has been assigned to a release we want to transfer the requirement over to the relevant delivery project where it will become an issue but we want to copy the 'user story' field contents into the 'description' field.

Can this be done?

You can accomplish this by adding a post function to the relevant workflow transition. The specific post function you want to use is "Copy Value from Field to Field".

I haven't tested it myself, but I think this will ADD the value from the originating field to the destination field. If you want the destination field to be emptied first, you can use the "Clear Field Value" first to clear it.
