Problem With Subtask and Setcustomfield

Hi there,

I'm a newbie with script runner and groovy. I have a problem and i hope you can help guys. Let's say;

We have a parent issue and under it we have one or more subtask. In the subtasks we have select list multi choice custom fields lets say 2 for now. Users do transitions on subtasks and fill those customfields in the normal flow. After these fields filled, i want to see them in the parent issue.

Subtask1 => HR: Test, Recruitment

Sales: Purchase, Direct Selling

Subtask2 => HR: Sack, Trainings

Sales: Mass Market, Direct Selling

Parent => HR: Test, Recruitment, Sack, Trainings

Sales: Purchase, Direct Selling, Mass Market, Direct Selling

In this example, HR and Sales my customfields and i want to see them in the parent issue as i described. The code has to get all subtask customfield values and move it to parent issue.

Can we do that? Is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there,

if you want to set fieldvalues from the subtask to it's parent or parents you can do this with post-functions in the workflow - if not in the normal workflow set a new transition in all status which is conditioned for a special group or role.

Hope this is a valid solution for your doing.
