Referencing Project or Task Custom Field on the Issue or Task

Problem

You wish to see:

  • the Project Custom Field data in the Task or Issue Custom Field
  • the Task Custom Field data in the Issue Custom Field

Solution

1. Create a new Task/Issue Custom Form or use an existing one. Add a Calculated Field with the following calculation: Project.{the name of the Project Custom Field}

2. Create a new Issue Custom Form or use an existing one. Add a Calculated Field with the following calculation: Source Task.{the name of the Task Custom Field}

NOTE Those objects should be in hierarchical relationship in order for the calculation to work:

  • the Task and Issue should belong to that exact Project
  • the Issue should belong to that exact Task

For more information about the hierarchy of objects and how referencing objects from one another works based on it, see "Understanding Objects."
