[Automation for JIRA] copy value from Custom field 1 to Custom Field 2 Edited

Hi - 

Could someone give me the json format to to copy value from customFieldId=10060 & set it to customFieldId=10014 inside the same issue that I could use in Automation for JIRA for JIRA cloud.

Unfortunately, it does not populate the source custom field in the [Copy From] dropdown to copy to customFieldId=10014 in the UI, so I think I'll need the json to set that, attachment added for reference.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anuj,


This will come down to what kind of field the 2 fields are. You should be able to copy between number and test fields.

Basically it should be something like:

"fields": {
"customfield_10014": {{issue.customfield_10060}}

But as I said, depends on the type of fields.



@Nick Menere - thanks, I'm going to try that & let you know.

@Nick Menere - it worked like mint, thanks a lot!

Hello @Anuj B @Nick Menere 

I'm running into the same problem ! 

I'm trying to copy one value from a custom field to another one on the same issue.

It doesn't work for issue created trigger rule, but it works perfectly for field value changed trigger rule !

I tried Json format as suggested above, it doesn't work. I also tried using the UI automation wizard (when, if, then) but no use !

Both custom fields are of type Select List (single choice) with the same values and None as a default value

I tried using the above query for copying components into a project picker field:

"fields": {
"{{}}":  {{issue.customfield_12700}}

I want to copy the component into the Project picker field (field number used here) but it doesn't work?

Could you please help?

@Nick MenereIs it possible to copy Date field? I am trying to copy Due Date(Standard field) to a custom field.

Please help!

@Nick Menere how should I update the above code so that the custom field from the epic is copied to the user story? The custom field is "customfield_10001" so I tried the following and it is not working: 

"fields": {
"customfield_10001": {{issue.parent.epic.customfield_10001}}
