How to copy custom field (Cascading Select) value from parent task to child sub-task

test = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10300"))
// test == class java.util.HashMap (Cascading Select custom field)

issueSubTaskParams.addCustomFieldValue(10300, test)

Hi community!

addCustomFieldValue accepts `String` only
So, how to get proper String value from HashMap?

Hey there,

i use the following

//Gets a reference to the desired custom field -  Cascading Select List
CustomField customField_object = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject( customfied_id );

//get the original value in a map Map valueMap = (Map)issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField_object); Option option = (Option)valueMap.get(null); String firstLevelValue = option.getValue(); option = (Option)valueMap.get("1"); String secondLevelValue = option.getValue();
//Create a string value with the values you get from Cascade select lis
String value = firstLevelValue + " - " + secondLevelValue

You can then pass the value string to your desired custom field.


parent = test.get(null).getGenericValue().id.value.toString()
child = test.get('1').getGenericValue().id.value.toString()
issueSubTaskParams.addCustomFieldValue("customfield_10300", parent)
issueSubTaskParams.addCustomFieldValue("customfield_10300:1", child)

Do you know if this still works in Jira 6.1.7?

It worked for me in Jira 7.2.9
