Advanced copy field value from epic to task

Hi everyone,

I have the below automation working in several of our projects.

The requirement is to add one more field to this automation which is not present in the dropdown menu. It says to use the More Options where I tried to figure out what I need to write but I failed. I found this example online

      "edit": {
        "customfield_id": [
               {"add": {"value": "{{value}}"}}{{^last}},{{/}}

and tried it but I am getting the following from the audit log:

I don't know if it matters but the field that I trying to include is locked.

Hi Anastasia,

It sounds like they field is not available - which would explain why it is not in the dropdown as well. Check the Context for the custom field to be sure it includes the project you are working with in this rule. If it is, check to see if it is on the Create screen for that project. 

Hi @John Funk

It is a locked field and it says:

It is associated with my screens and I can see it in all the projects.

Okay - thanks for sharing that. What type of project are you using? Team-managed? Company-managed? Jira Work Management?

It is a company-managed project.

Very good - see the other posts - not looking good right now.

I tested it with other fields that work for sure and I am getting the same result. 

I think the json is wrong. 

John Funk Community Leader Nov 24, 2022

Can you share the actual json that you have?

"edit": {
"customFieldId_10001": [
{"add": {"value": "{{value}}"}}{{^last}},{{/}}


I am really not literal with json so I wouldn't find a mistake

John Funk Community Leader Nov 24, 2022

Should be customField_10001 not customFieldID_100001

Sorry John, 

I can't see what do you mean. Both of them are customFieldId_10001. I copy-pasted the value from the field's info.

John Funk Community Leader Nov 24, 2022

You do not need the letters ID in there.

Oh, I see now, I thought the extra 0 was the issue. I just tried it and unfortunately got the same result.
