copy a field value from parent issue type to child issue type in jira

Hi All,

We have a field in program epic (parent) and the same field is also present in epic (child)

we need to copy the values from parent to child

is this possible ??

I want to copy the values and not move the values, which means in both the issue type the values must be present

You can refer to the following link for a video tutorial.  It would be rule 2, but change the branching to be "stories or other issues in epics).

Yes you can, you need an addon like Automation for Jira or Scriptrunner.


Hope this helps

Hi thanks,

Is any option available without using the script

can we try using JSU suite 


Without plugin you won't be able to achieve this.

Yes it should be possible with JSU

Hi Mohamed,

Yes i did this but it did not work for me

the values did not copy

You can also try with JMWE's Copy Field Value to Related Issues post-function. Configuration should be pretty straightforward.

HI All,

Can this been done using a script?

can any one help on the script
