Copy option values from one custom field to another


I have 2 custom fields - one select choice and one multiple choice.

I would like to do this flow:

1. Insert a new option in the first custom field (select choice).

2. The second custom field (multiple choice) will insert automatically the same option.


I try to do it with script listener, but without success.


I try this code:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager;
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParameters
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.manager.OptionsManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager

Issue issue = event.getIssue();
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(OptionsManager.class);

//Get Options values of "WBL Agile Team"
def wblTeam = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("WBL Agile Team");
def fieldConfig1 = wblTeam.getRelevantConfig(issue);

def options1 = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig1);
def results1=[];
def i=0;
for (Option option1 : options1) {

//Get Options values of "WBL Agile Team/s"
def wblTeams = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("WBL Agile Team/s");
def fieldConfig2 = wblTeams.getRelevantConfig(issue);
def options2 = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig2);
for (Option option2 : options2) {

Hey Daniel, 

The following script will append to the multi select list the value of the single select list. 

This should be a custom listener, listening for an issue updated event. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.LazyLoadedOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

def issue = issue as MutableIssue
def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "SelectListA"}

// if is not the SelectListA that got updated, do nothing
if (!change) { return }

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def selectList = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "SelectListA"}

def selectLitValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(selectList) as LazyLoadedOption

if (!selectLitValue) {

def multiList = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "MultiSelectA"}
def oldValues = (issue.getCustomFieldValue(multiList) as List<LazyLoadedOption>) ?: []

def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
multiList.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(multiList), oldValues << selectLitValue), changeHolder)

Please let me know if this does the trick for you.

Regards, Thanos


Thank you,

It isn't help.. the options didn't change
