[JIRA Suite Utilities] Copy components and labels fields from parent to subtask

I'm using JIRA Suite Utilities 1.4.9.

I added post function on transition for subtask: "Copy Value From Other Field - Copies the value of one field to another, either within the same issue or from parent to sub-task."

Everything is working ok for fields like 'Affects version', 'Priority'.

But it's not working fo components and labels.

Does JIRA Suite Utilities supports those fields?

A couple of notes:

  • make sure you use JSU 1.4.10+ version, to be able to have required functionality: Copy Value From Other Field Post Function" supports components.
  • The Copy Value From Other Field post-function should be the first on the list of post-functions for the 'Create Issue' transition, see Post-Function+in+the+create+issue+transition



Yes, it supports those fields. But make sure you have component and label fields not hidden in your field configuration/scheme for that project and exist in screens/scheme.

Yes, Labels field is not hidden, and is present on all screens.

Hi, How are you resolve this problem ?

Hi ,


Any update on this issue?




Were you able to figure out your issue? I'm having the same problem.

I have the same problem. It seems that every custom field and every system field is available for the copy field value function except the field "component". Component is not hidden in the field configuration scheme and is on the parent issue screen and on the subtask issue screen. Do you know a solution for that problem?



Hi, I have the same problem. JIRA Suite Utilities 1.4.9 and not able to copy "labels" and "components" to sub-issues.

Having the same problem, have you solved your problem?

Same problem here, an update would be great!

Using JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions (which is free and pre-installed but not enabled by default in the Cloud version), there is a Post Function called "Set Field Value from Parent" which successfully copies the Parent's Labels to a SubTask's Labels.  The caveat is that it will overwrite any values that are entered on the screen but at least it works!
