Setting custom date field from parent to subtask

Sebastian Östlund November 11, 2020


I am using the behaviour found here: to copy data in system and custom fields from the parent to the sub-task.

I´ve managed to get it to work with all fields except for custom date fields. I´ve written the name of the fields in:

List copyCustomFields =

But it does not work even though it works for all the other fields. I also get an error on the line:


Saying: "[Static type checking] - The variable [outlookDate] is undeclared"

What does this mean? Can that have something to do with it?

Hi @Sebastian Östlund , it seems like you are referring to the old version of the Behaviour article. There is a difference script version in the latest Behaviour Page: 

Please give a try using the latest script from the link above and let us know how it goes.

I did a quick test using the behaviour script on the JIRA date custom field and I can confirm is working. The warning syntax shouldn't be the issue since I got it too. The reason getting the warning is due the method or property is run are looked up when your code is run, not when it’s compiled. I hope this helps.
