is it possible to add a new custom field and additionally map Values from a existing field to it? My Usecase is to Change a DropDown List to a Textfield. Additonally i want the values of the specific DropDownBox passed to the new TextField. After that i would like to delete the obsolete DropDown.
Thanks for your help in advance
Not sure if script runner would copy from select list to text field as there's some changes on the schema of select list compared to text field in database since v4.4. You may want to try it out first.
Otherwise, you can change custom field type with this documentation. But the custom field value(customfieldvalue table) of select list actually referring to the option id in customfieldoption table. You may need to constructed a sql queries to update the correct values though. After modification, reindex would be required.
Either way you would need to perform such task in a test instance to ensure it works and not breaking any things in JIRA.
