Migrate field values to custom fields

Hey there,

I created a custom field and I want now to migrate the value of the affected version field to the custom field. Does JIRA has any possible to migrate field values to custom fields?

We solved it now with the JIRA-RestClient as Workaround. Thanks anyway :)!

Hi Mokuyobi,

We are come to same situation, Can you please explaing how to achieved this problem by using JIRA-Rest Client

Why don't you write a post function to copy field value and add this post function to a transition.

Then with bulk transition you can execute this all 500+ requests.


you can copy field values during transitions with a post-function using the suite utilities plugin


Thanks for the answer but the problem is that I need this change to almost 500 tickets. It would be silly to click each ticket indivually. Doesnt it give an option like migrating instead of post-functions?

yes indeed this would be quite uncomfortable..

i'm just checkin if the groovy script runner plugin can handle this...

sorry...script runner plugin can only copy values from one customfield to another...

i believe you will need some own scripting to do this

Okay thanks anyway for your effort!

Anyone knows how it works ?
