Helo Ulrich,

Apparently you can achieve that with the script runner plugin. I found the following answer, where people are discussing how to do that:

Please take a look and let me know if it helps you out.


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService.UpdateValidationResult
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService.IssueResult
import java.sql.Timestamp
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager 
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager 
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "fromwhich you want to get the value"}
def cfgvalue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)
MutableIssue issue = event.issue
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
IssueManager issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "Custome field to be set"}
//def date1 = new Timestamp(new Date().getTime())	// use this one if field is date type		
def newvalue = "abc
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, newvalue)
User currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()	
issueManager.updateIssue(currentUserObj, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
