Transferring the Values from One Custom Field to Another



Is it possible to Transfer the value of one custom field to another, so that the previous field could be deleted? If yes, then: 

- Is it possible to transfer the value from same types of custom field (Number to Number) ?

- Is it possible to transfer from different types of fields (Text type to Number) ?


Also, will it be directly mapped to the correct issues ? 

Thanks for your help in advance!


Thanks and Regards

if you have a scriptrunner, you can use built-in functionality to do it:

if not, i would export data to csv (in a form issuekey;fieldvalue) and then import it into another field, which will also cover text to number transition

Hi @Ilya Turov 

 Thank you for your response!

Exporting through CSV solved my problem.


Thanks and Regards

can you share step by step about this issue
i wanna transfer from current field to new field

You could use automation that you can manually trigger that copies the value from one cell to another.

If you choose the 'edit' feature, you can select the source and destination field.

When the automation is triggered, the field content is copied and you can then remove the source field from the screen view when done.

Hi Mr.Paul,


I have a issue here.  I want to copy custom date to another custom field which is also date in existing project.  There are 33 issues and i need to just copy the dates.


Can you please help me here.

HI @geetha_bp 

In the same way as described, using the automation would be the simplest way I believe.

Alternatively, you could export the data to excel and re-import it to the tickets.

If the automation doesn't work because the field formats differ, importing may be the easiest approach (other than scriptrunner).

Hope that helps
