Copy User Picker field to text field

Hi guys, hope you are doing great.

I have a custom field called "Approver" of the type "User picker per group", wich is an special type of field provided by one of the Kepler add-ons.

My question is:

How can I build a SIL script using the JJUpin add-on, to bulk copy the value from that field to a regular JIRA text field?

We are going to delete that field since we are upgrading to JIRA 7 but we'd like to keep a history record at least in a text field. We are using:

  • JIRA 6.1
  • JJUpin 3.0.18

Thank you in advance for your help.

You can try to create a jql to return the issues and the loop and perform the copy issue by issue.
i think I have a sample sil script, let me search for it.
another way is to export a Csv with the summary, key and the field you need to remove and then import it back with the import from csv function.
if Jira detects the issue key it will be update the field you want allowing you to map each column with a field
the summary field is mandatory
