Here it is!

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
CustomField field = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_15117")

Collection<Issue> subTasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects()
subTasks.each { subTask ->
MutableIssue mutableIssue = issueManager.getIssueByKeyIgnoreCase(subTask.getKey().toString())
ApplicationUser appUser = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("sysadmin")
mutableIssue.setCustomFieldValue(field, issue.getCustomFieldValue(field))
issueManager.updateIssue(appUser, mutableIssue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

Just to add to the good answer provided by @Mahesh S

In the final line of code, I would use

issueManager.updateIssue(appUser, mutableIssue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)

instead of  

issueManager.updateIssue(appUser, mutableIssue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

Because as per docs

Issue updateIssue(ApplicationUser user,
                  MutableIssue issue,
                  EventDispatchOption eventDispatchOption,
                  boolean sendMail)

This method will store the provided issue to the JIRA datastore.

The issue will be saved and re-indexed unless EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH is specified. This method performs no permission checks.
