Can be used when bulk editing to add a checklist template to multiple issues.
Checklist items for each checklist template can be accessed via the Jira API.
If the Checklist Template field is updated when the Enable multiple checklists per issue global setting is enabled and there is already a checklist on the issue, then the selected template will be added as a separate checklist.
If the Checklist Template field is updated when the Enable multiple checklists per issue global setting is disabled and there is already a checklist on the issue, then the selected template will be appended to the existing checklist.
How to Find the Custom Field ID
When using custom fields with automation, scripts, etc. you will need the ID number of the custom field.
To find the ID of the custom field:
Log in as a Jira Administrator.
Go to Jira Settings > Issues > Custom fields.
Search for the indicated custom field.
Click the More menu (…) and select Edit Details.
Copy the URL of the page. The URL will end with the ID number of the custom field.
Custom fields can be duplicated by some errors or rare scenarios. If you are experiencing issues with accessing custom fields, make sure you are referencing the custom field that is currently used by Issue Checklist.
