"Copy Value From Field to Field" post-function does not allow copying just the Parent value

Description

In a new JIRA 6.0 rollout that I'm configuring, we're using a Cascade Select field to capture Product (parent) and Component (child) values. Unfortunately, we've stumbled across the problem that JIRA itself doesn't support Cascade Select as completely as we need for Dashboards (per https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-6411).

With the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin, we're able to use the following options:

  • Copy Value From Field to Field Function: Copies just the Cascade Select child value (e.g. "A2")

  • Copy Value From Field to Field Function (with option: Return "parent - child" for cascading custom fields): Copies the concatenated Cascade Select parent and child values (e.g. "A - A2")

Unfortunately, from a business perspective we really need the last remaining option, namely the ability to clone just the Parent value to a new field for Dashboard reporting purposes.

I can see that implemented the concatenated parent/child choice, but as far as I know there isn't a way to simply get the parent choice.

Any help would be most appreciated!
