create transition copy field value

Hi,

When a new Issue is created (on create transition) I want to copy the field value of teamlead (user drop down) to assignee.

Anyone a solution for that?

 

I have tried following:

 

Post Function:

It is not working via post function besides it works on all transition excepts the create transition.

As last step oin the post functions:

"The field Assignee will take the value from Team Lead. Source and destination issue are the same." 

  1. Creates the issue originally.
  2. Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database.
  3. Fire a Issue Created event that can be processed by the listeners.
  4. The field Assignee will take the value from Team Lead. Source and destination issue are the same.

 

Script Runner:

I trying to use script runner via script listener (Fast-track transition an issue) without success:

 

Events = Generic Event

Condition: issue.statusObject.name == 'Open'

Action = target transition in my case "Ready for Approval"

How a script runenr listener trigger? Is somewhere a intervall configured when they run?

You may want to use scriptrunner post functions on your workflow. After clicking on "Create" transition and "post function" you will be able to add a Custom script function.

Make sure that your function is executed before the "Creates the issue originally"

You can change everything you want by modifying the "issue" object.

Some examples here:

Probably the closest is "Convert fields to Upper Case on Submission"

Great it works! :) Script workflow function : Fast-track transition an issue - with no condition

I don't think you'll be able to do it because the value isn't in the database until the issue is actually created. Before that it is just data on the screen.
