Copy Multiple value CF to the child ticket

I am creating a child ticket with some of the custom fields populated
from the parent ticket. I know that we can copy the values of the parent
CF to the child CF by:

CustomField-n: {$Tickets{‘TOP’}->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘CF Name’)}

But, how to copy multiple-value CF to the child ticket? The above code
is just populating the first selected value.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Given a new enough RT, CustomFieldValuesAsString will work

I am using version 3.8.4 so CustomFieldValuesAsString is not available.

I changed the template like this:
CustomField-n: {
my $separator = “\n”;
my $CFValue = $Tickets{‘TOP’}->CustomFieldValues(n);
return join ($separator, grep { defined $_ }
map { $_->Content }
@{$CFValue->ItemsArrayRef});
}

To get the values as strings but it still not working, Am I doing
something wrong or is there any extension available for
’CustomFieldValuesAsString’ method?

You could define it in a local .pm adding it into the Record, or you
could play around with warning to make sure you get the right data.
I’m not sure that return’ing in a template does what you really want.

So, does this mean that I have to upgrade to 3.8.7 to copy multiple
value custom filed to a child ticket?

No, I’ll requote what I said

There are at least 3 things in there to try.
