Copy field value from linked issue


Use a post function to copy any field value from a linked issue to the issue in transition.


When an issue is updated, I want to assign a specific field of all linked issues to the same value which the updated issue now has.

Good to Know

fieldNameToCopy: The field name of which the value will get copied. issueLinkNameToSync: The issue linked with that link type will be used as the source issue.
