Post function parameters

This post function takes the following parameters:

  • Source Field - a list of Jira standard and custom fields. This is the source of value. You can choose field from current issue or it parent (if exists)
  • Destination Field - field to be updated. You can also update subtask/parent field
  • Add source value(s) to destination field - ticking this option will add missing options to the destination custom field (if it's dictionary-based) or append source text to the existing destination field value.
  • Copy to destination field - a condition to check the destination field.

Please note that this post function does a simple check to determine if copying for some types of fields is possible. If the check fails, you will see this message after adding the post function:

This error will occur, e.g. when you try to copy the current assignee to the "due date" field.
