How can I copy a value from a custom field and copy to Component field?

I am a newbie. In my workflow, when a ticket gets created, I'd like to use:

add post function -> Script post function -> custom script post function 

to copy value of a custom field to a Component field. Any idea what the script for that will look like? Thank you in advance!

Hi Mick,


If you're using the JJupin plugin, the script will be as easy as:

components = someCustomFieldName; // or customfield_12345

The components variable is predefined, the CF can be accessed by its name or id. Here is the full list of predefined variables and a SIL Getting started for newbies smile In short, SIL is the scripting language designed for JIRA(and we recently started a plugin powered by SIL for Confluence)

Hope this helps,


the JIRA MISC Workflow plugin works for me and it's very simple and easy to use

Thanks all for your response. I also found that out my JIra Suite Utility was an older version. Newer 1.4.10 version allows a built-in function to assign a custom field to the Component field. While this functionality existed in the earlier versions, assigning to a Component was missing and was put in in 1.4.10 version.
