Overwrite / Append / Prepend

For text fields and some fields that can take multiple values (like checkboxes) you can choose to overwrite, append or prepend the new value to any existing value. In the case of text field, you can also choose a separator that will be put between the values (not shown in the screen shot above).

Create version if necessary

Imagine your origin issue has a version, that you want to copy to the linked issue.

If the destination field is 'Fix Version/s', 'Affects Version/s' or some custom field of type 'Version Picker', you can choose that a new version will be created in the target project, if not yet existed. If you don't choose this option and that version does not yet exist, the user will get an error message and the transition won't complete.

However be aware, that the version will be created, even if the user does not have the 'Administer Projects' permission. (Normally a user needs that permission to be able to create a new version.)

Special 'Sources'

As source you have some additional options:

  • *** default value ***
    The default value of the destination field will be set.
  • *** empty ***
    The destination field will be cleared.set with the empty string value. When overwriting a field value, the resulting destination value will be null. When appending/prepending a field value, the resulting destination value will be the concatenation of the existing field value (if any) and the separator. If the intention is to clear the destination field value, then use the JSU "Set Any Field Value" or "Clear Field Value" post-functions. (See: Post-Function Concatenation Operations)
  • *** transition comment ***
    The comment, which the user entered on the transition screen.
  • *** last comment ***
    The last (most recent) comment already existing on the issue before the transition was started.

Special 'Destinations'

As destination you have some additional options:

  • *** new comment ***
    Create a new comment with the value from the source field.
