This article provides steps to copy cascade field values from one issue to another issue. When we clone an issue through automation, the cascade field will not be listed under the fields selection list and we need to use JSON value to copy the value.


To copy the cascade field value from one issue to another issue we need to use the following JSON value. Here customfield_10104 represents the cascaded custom field by its id.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 { "update": { "customfield_10104": [ { "set": { "value": "{{triggerIssue.fields.customfield_10104.value}}", "child": { "value": "{{triggerIssue.fields.customfield_10104.child.value}}" } } } ] } }
