Copyint "story point estimate" to "Story Points"


I have an automation rule that originates in a next gen project. If an issue there receives a value in the field "story point estimate" it will create a clone issue in another project, which is a classic project.

In the target issue I thus do not have the field "story point estimate" but only "Story Points". How can I fill this field with the story points estimate from the next-gen issue?


Thanks in advance!

Hi @Isabelle Giegling 

The Story Point Estimate field does not appear to be accessible yet for Next Gen automation rules.  Here is the backlog item for it:

It appears the field can be accessed directly for queries, as noted in this community posting:

However, I do not believe that work-around will help with the problem that you are trying to solve to copy the Story Point Estimate into a cloned issue.


Best regards,
