After upgrading to JIRA 6.0, the Update Issue Field post-function stops working in the Create Issue transition after upgrading to JIRA 6.



This happens if your Create Issue transition is configured as below, where the Update Issue Field post-function is triggered after the Creates the issue originally post-function:


This happens due to a change in JIRA 6. In JIRA 5.2.11, this worked whether the Update Issue Field was before the Creates the issue originally or after. This change is currently being tracked as a bug on JRA-33182 .


  1. Edit the Workflow showing this behaviour.
  2. Move the Update Issue Field post-function to the top of the list (before the Creates the issue originally):
  3. Publish the Workflow Draft that was created.
