Copy Value From Other Field Post Function

This is the JSU for Jira Cloud documentation. If you are using JSU on Jira Server or on Jira Data Center, see our JSU Server/Data Center documentation.


The ‘Copy Value From Other Field’ post function copies the value of one field to another field. You can configure any number of source/destination field pairs. You can also use this post function to copy from/to comments.

The copy operation can be performed either within the same issue or to/from a related issue.


You must specify the relation between the source and destination issues for the field to copy. Then you can add any number of from/to field pairs for the copy operation.

A workflow is configured so the 'Resolve' transition has the 'Copy Value From Other Field' post function. The function is configured to copy the value of the 'Assignee' field to the 'TextField' field.
