Copy field values to custom fields and vice versa

With scriptrunner for JIRA: Is it possible (if it is, please tell me how) to copy field values, e.g. the reporter of an issue to a custom field via postfunction?
In a later workflow step I'd like to do it the other way around and copy the value of my custom field back into the reporter field.

 

Thanks

David

Hi,

 

Can you try the snippet below?

Note that, I did not try the code

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12700")
issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, issue.reporter.name)

Tuncay

Assuming the custom field name used there is correct, this should work for setting the field. Assuming your custom field is also a user picker, you can basically reverse it to set the reporter back again with

def user = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
issue.setReporter(user.id)

You can do that with with the jira-suite-utilities plugin (free)

Thank you!
But I'm also curios if (and how!) you can do it with groovy script.
