Which version of JIRA? Also,are you runnig the script inside of the workflow (post-function)?

Hi Lak,

here your javascript code

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    var value = jQuery("#customfield_10200-val").text().trim();

Keep in mind that you have to use the correct Custom Field Id (10200 is the id in my instance).

Hope this helps,


Thanks Fabio. I will try and let you know.
