How to compare two text fields in JIRA

Hi,

I have requests for comparing two text fields in JIRA, for example issue summary vs. Epic Name.

I have looked into my options with the issueFunction, but fieldMatch and exactFieldMatch only work against values (regexp or string), not another field.

Can you please advise?

Thanks,

Ondrej

There isn't anything out of the box. You might be able to find a plugin in the marketplace. the other question is are they to be compared AFTER the issue is saved or before. If before you'll probably need a script to run when trying to save the issue and then deny the save if they don't match.
