Post function copy field if not empty

Is there a way to copy a field to another with the condition to only do so if the original value is not null? Please note that my environment is OnDemand and the groovy script runner is not available.

I'm afraid this is not possible with the version of JMWE available on OnDemand. We are currently negociating with Atlassian to have a newer version of JMWE (which includes a conditional copy from field to field function) available on OnDemand, I will keep you posted if that happens (not very likely though).

Thanks for the quick response.. Let's see where Atlassian moves to then. :)

You can try to use a post function to acheive this functionality.


Ex: Worfklows-->Diagram--->Select the line--->Click POst Functions--->Add POst Function--->Select Copy Field

This question was from 2014, those features were not available back then.

@Deepan Chandrasekaran, is there any conditional statements?

Hi Dorian,

With the current JMWE for Jira cloud version, you can do it without any conditional execution script using the "ignore empty value" option.
