Using "Copy custom field values" Builtin Script Runner for copying Fix/Affects Versions values

I created a custom field called "Reported Versions," which will replace "Affects Version/s" field in all my projects. I am researching for the most efficient ways to copy the values of "Affects Version/s" to "Reported Versions" in a bulk, and it looks like Script Runner is the way to go. I was delighted to find a builtin script for this feature, but it doesn't work as I hoped because "Affects Version/s" is not a custom field. How should I go about resolving this issue? 

At the moment, my workaround is to utilize the post-function that will copy one field value to the other (Fix/Affects Version works for this) and mass transition all issues and back. This seems like a more tedious way (mainly because I have to transition issues back), so a solution using a Script Runner will be very appreciated!

You'd have to write your own or extend the one that's shipped.
