What is providing the scripted fields?  Scriptrunner or JMWE or something else?

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

We have used Scriptrunner.

There's a long boring story about how scripted fields work, but it ends in "do not use scripted field results to calculate other stuff on issues - you might not get the right answer".

Imagine you have a scripted field that is "number of days elapsed between the issue got assigned to someone, and the current due date on it".  And imagine that currently says "7".

Next, you have another calculation that simply says "days elapsed * 2".

If someone amends the due date, making it 3 days later, you may find the second field says 18 sometimes and 14 at others.

To fix this, your second calculation needs to repeat what the first one is doing, rather than take the result from the scripted field.

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ ,

Thanks for your response.

Is it possible to get custom field value of linked issue and copy it to issue using listener?

Rather than copying scripted field value.

Absolutely, we've even got an example for you to copy, paste, and tweak to suit -
