Using automation rules within Jira Cloud, I'm automating the creation of issues when the Epic is created and a related checkbox is ticked. As an example, if I tick 'UX' as a requirement in the 'Resources Required' field, then when the Epic is created, it creates a 'UX' issue.
For the most part, I have it working as expected (including linking the new issue back to the Epic, setting the summary field to match the Summary of the Epic with a custom string appended to it, and making the assignee the same person that is set in a custom field from the Epic). However, I have hit a stumbling block with the 'Original Estimate' field.
When I choose 'copy from', unlike other fields, my options are limited to 'Original Estimate', 'Remaining Estimate', and 'Time Spent' only - there is no option to select any other field type.
I've tried using the 'Set value' operation, but I can't get it to work. I'm not sure if this is because my script is wrong, or there is a limitation set somewhere due to Tempo (which we're also using).
Please can anyone tell me if there is something wrong with the way I have structured the following script:
Hi @Rob Dunn ,
Can you share a bit more details about the field you want to copy into the Original Estimate field? (CustomField_11837) e.g. what custom field type is it? what does the field value look like? - you can look this up via https://<sitename>.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/<issue-key>.
