Post function on issue field change


My project uses Fix Version as columns in our board, and our customer / product owner changes Fix Version + Priority on parent issues to plan the teams working priorities. We have Create post functions (with the JMWE add-on) that copy Fix Version and Priority from parents to subtasks.

When the pipeline is re-planned after some time, existing issues are moved around by changing these fields - but the sub task fields are not updated. Is it possible to run a post function after field changes, so that priority and Fix Version can be automatically updated on subtasks?

Alternatively it would also work to set up inheritance from the parent (only for this project, not globally), although it would be best if a subtask could change Fix Version without the parent changing.

I can't add paid add-ons, so keep solution suggestions to free add-ons or existing functionality please!
