Hi @sgole

You can try to apply the sample script below in the Behaviour Initialiser:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

// Get Epic Link field and it's value
def epic = getFieldByName("Epic Link")
def value = epic.getValue() as String

if(getActionName() == "Create" && value == null ){
//Set epic link

I'm using Scriptrunner 6.18.0 and Jira 8.13.1.

Hope you found this useful!

hii @Jia Jie  Thanks for your help , in my case i was trying to set JIRA in setFormvalue ex. setFormvalue("JIRA") ,

instead of setFormvalue("EEHQAN-2") works :). 


Hi @sgole ,

Glad that it works now and I'm happy to help!

@Jia Jie , can you please help me to set  default "sprint" field also

Hi @sgole ,

It's similar to the sample script above. Try to get your sprint by its Id, then set it with sprint id.

//Get Sprint field by its id
def sprint = getFieldById("customfield_10101")

//Set the default sprint with sprint id

 You can refer to the community post here on getting the sprint id.

I found this resolved Atlassian Community discussion to be relevant to this case: Create a default Epic Link using Behavior . Do check it out if it suits your requirement.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
