Unable to update Parent Issue's Custom Field while updating Child Issue's same Custom Field



I have a Custom Field in an Issue.Same Custom field is present in its Parent issue too.

My requirement is, when i have added any value in child issue , same will check with the parent issue's field and will be added if its not present.

I am able to fetch vaue from both Child and Parent Issue's Custom Field.

I am able to filter out the Unique one's too.

But when ever i am updating the Child issue the Parent is not Updated and no Value has been added.

I am doing this Using Listener , and i dont have much knowledge about these as m new to this.

Do we have any predefined Function for this ? or Specific Event? Any Help Will be Appreciated.

Below is my working Code.

log.debug("Printing Custom Field : --" + customField)
def impactedAppValues = customField.getValueFromIssue(issue) as String "Printing Custom Field with Issuee Value : --" + impactedAppValues

String[] elements = impactedAppValues.split("\\s*[;]\\s*"); "Printing elements with Issuee Value : --" + elements

List<String> fixedLenghtList = Arrays.asList(elements);

ArrayList<String> listOfString = new ArrayList<String>(fixedLenghtList); "Printing listOfString with Issuee Value : --" + listOfString

// From here parent Issue Details Starts....
def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Parent Link")
def parentValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) "Printing parentValue value :-----" + parentValue

def planviewProjectSide = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(CustomFieldManager).getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10602");
Issue PlanviewIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("" + parentValue);
def parentCustomField = planviewProjectSide.getValueFromIssue(PlanviewIssue) as String "Printing parentCustomField value :-----" + parentCustomField

String[] elements1 = parentCustomField.split("\\s*[;]\\s*"); "Printing elements for Parent Issuee Value : --" + elements1

List<String> fixedLenghtList1 = Arrays.asList(elements1);

ArrayList<String> listOfString1 = new ArrayList<String>(fixedLenghtList1); "Printing listOfString1 For Parent Issuee Value : --" + listOfString1

listOfString1.addAll(listOfString) "Printing listOfString1 Againnnnnnnnn For Combined Value of 1 & 2--" + listOfString1

listOfString1.unique() "Printing listOfString1 Unique Values of 1 & 2--" + listOfString1

//def parentCustomField1 = listOfString1
// "Printing parentCustomField -----" + parentCustomField


/* From Here i have added code for duplicate Value or With Duplicate number checking or sorting value */
def listUniqueValues = []
def valuesAlreadySeen = new HashSet()

listOfString1.each { item ->
def value = item.split(" ")[0]

if (! valuesAlreadySeen.contains(value)) {
listUniqueValues << item

valuesAlreadySeen << value
} "Printing listUniqueValues" + listUniqueValues // working "Printing valuesAlreadySeen" + valuesAlreadySeen
//listUniqueValues.sort() { a,b -> a <=> b }.each { println it }

parentCustomField = listUniqueValues "Printing parentCustomField -----" + parentCustomField
