During 'Bulk change' , Can we Copy "Fix Version/s" value to Build Number Field ?

Currently we updated Fix Version/s with Build Number Value.. so we would like to Copy "Fix Version/s" value to Build Number. and later update fix Version/s value with right version number.

while Bulk change it is allowing only set "Build Number" with static value , is there a way to copy Fix Version/s value to "Build Number" field ?

You could consider making a loop transition on the current status of the issues, and add a "Copy value from field to field" post function to it. Then, bulk transition the issues to their current status to trigger the loop and post function.

No, the bulk edit is exactly what it says - it performs the same edit on each issue selected.

It's simply not dynamic like that.

What you CAN do though: Set up the workflow on the issues so that it has a transition like "copy fix" (you can hide it from normal users with a condition like "only admins" if you want). Use a post-function to copy the fix version to the build number field - you will need to find/write a plugin to do that, but there's quite a lot of "copy field" plugins available in the marketplace.

Then, use "bulk edit" and transition all the issues through the new transition.
