How to copy Epic Name into a new custom field


I would like to create a customer field (let's call it "Epic Link New") that copies the value from Epic Name. I tried to create an automation that would allow me to do that, but I couldn't find an option to set a value like that:

EPIC Link New == Epic Name


Does anyone have an idea how to do that?

Hi @yarivb ,

Can you share the Automation rule that you have created so far (screenshot)?

I don't have much to show, because I don't find an action that allows me to do the following:

If IssueType = Epic


Copy value from field "Epic Name" to custom field "EL"


Once I know how to do that, I am good

This is what I have so far. I am struggling with the "THEN" part, of course.

If you click on the words Current Issue, it should open a popup box where you can choose which field to copy into the EL field. It's not very intuitive, but it works.
