Jira cloud - changing fix version of story whenever epic fix version is changed


I have a requirement where I need to change the fix version of stories under the epic whenever the epic fix version is changed.

How do I achieve this requirement.

This is on Jira cloud.

You can do this with Script runner for Cloud. Here's the sample code. Basically you would need to use script listener to list for fixVersion change events and then update the same version on child stories. 


Thank you for your reply but I do not understand what you are trying to pull when you say the below in the first line


Ok I now get it that the epic-name is being found at the customfield_10003 but this holds good when a story is created for an epic and the fix version is set automatically.

But, my original requirement was, whenever EPIC fixVersion is changed, all the associated stories fix version should change. This does not work with the given script.

Any help on achieving it is much appreciated :)
