Need help with copying a date value from one field to another field using Listener

Hi, I need help with using a listener for the below purpose,

I want the DUE DATE field value to be copied to TARGET END DATE every-time it is created/updated for the EPIC issue Type. Also, I would like to make the TARGET END DATE field unedittable.

Can anyone please help me with a listener to help achieve this.


Thank you

Hi @Aisha M ,

My advice would to be to create a "Script Field" (gg > Script Fields) with this configuration image.png

with a Date Time Range picker searcher : 


and make sure to edit the context so it is only available for epics : 


Lastly add the field to the relevant screens, and voila !

This way the field will be synchronized with the due date in real time.

Hi @Antoine Berry , Thank you so much for your help :) This seems like a great way.

But, my team insists that this needs to happen with the TARGET END DATE. I am confused how to make it happen as this field is a locked JIRA field . .

Why are they insisting to use that field ? Is it used somewhere else ?

@Antoine Berry They want to keep both the field uniform with the values. 

@Antoine Berry I ll mark your reply as answer, as it seems like another good option :)

I think if you just want a copy of a field it is the most appropriate/easy solution. Do you still need help with the listener ?

@Antoine Berry Well, looks like a different member from my team has successfully worked on it and is in the testing phase. Anyway, thank you for your quick help as always :)

You are welcome ! Let me know if you need anything else in the future.

@Antoine Berry Hi Antoine,

Can you please help me with the below question,

Would really appreciate your help. Thank you !
