How to use the value of a field to put in another field?


Is it possible to retrieve the value of a custom field and put in the summary field?

With a variable? for example : ${fullname} ?

I need to do this for Service Desk.

- JIRA has some predefined postfunction "Update Issue Field" - maybe this cover your needs

- otherwise try find some existing plugin solution on, eg: JIRA Suite Utilities.

- you can do this by script postfunction, but this required some coding

Yes it is possible, just simply use setSummary method on MutableIssue to set value and CustomFieldManager to access value from custom field. But summary accepts string values, so you must convert your custom field value to string, because manager returns object - depends on custom field type return values can be string, number, User class, list of objects etc.

String summary = "Some summary string";


And without plugins, it's possible ?

I'm not developper :-)

Thanks a lot !
