Copy a custom field value to another field

Overview

Estimated Time: 4 min

Create on Transition for Jira offers two ways to copy a custom field value to a different custom field. The new way provides the ability to do this for more fields than before.

For this example, let's say you want to copy the value of source_cf to target_cf for the newly created issue of the subtask.
