Bulk change issues to other type with checklist custom field gives error

When I try to bulk move issues (even when I select one issue) to another project, the bulk move fails with:

I found out that this problem is related to a checklist custom field which was not present on the original issue type, but is present on the new issue type. When I move the issues manually, the move goes ok, but when moved in bulk change, I get this error. My workaround was to add the checklist custom fields to the issue types of the original issues. 

Our Checklist version is: 2.0.0.

No, not yet and no reaction from okapya as well. But I found a workaround myself, by adding the checklist fields also on the original issue. This is not always an acceptable workaround however.

I am also having this problem. Did you get a solution? 

Oh that workaround will actually work in my case. Thanks for the tip!


This should now be fixed in version 2.1.0.
