How to Copy Field Value from Epic?


I try to set up a custom field as same as the Epic.

In the "create issue" pop up, the user  set up Epic Link.

I tried to use a post function to "create" transition (Copy Field Value To Linked Issues).

did you ever get this to work? I'm trying to do something similar.



I'm trying to do something similar but using "System and Custom Fields propagation to linked Issue" post-function my custom field isn't copied from Epic to Linked Stories during Story creation after selected Epic Link.

Let me know if you resolved the issue.
