How to add a label to the parent issue ?


I would like to add the Fix Version value of the current issue as label in all linked issues of a given issue type on a specific event using post function feature.

Have you any idea on how to do that?

You can see JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions for setting value to parent issue, but it seems that it only copy or set to same field.


You will have to develop a custom postfunction

Yes, I try with that plugin but infortunatelly as you mentionned, if there are existing labels ion the parent issue, then they are overwriten by the used post function (Write field on linked issues or subtasks) with new one. So the problem here is how to add instead of replacing the existing ones.
