This post function lets you copy the value of a cascading select list field to another field.


Source field

Select the cascading select list field the value will be copied from. Choose from the dropdown list or start typing to look up existing fields.

Option level

Select the option level that you want to copy. The following options are available:

First levelThe first or parent level of the cascading select list field will be copied.
Second levelThe second or child level of the cascading select list field will be copied.

Selecting "Both levels" returns a text like "first_level_option - second_level_option".

Target field

Select the field the value will be copied to.

Additional options

Choose to update issues immediately if you want Jira to fire a separate "Issue updated" event for any field change.  This will also result in a dedicated issue history entry.

Conditional execution

You can optionally specify a logical expression to define the circumstances (or conditions) under which the post function should be executed.

The result of the logical expression must return a boolean value of either:

  • true → the post function will be executed
  • false → the post function will not be executed

Using the conditional operator, even complex or multi-layered conditions can be constructed.

Make sure to learn more about defining logical expressions and browse through the various examples here: Logical mode
