Hi @Wroblewski, Arkadiusz ,

Welcome to the community!

What you describe is really a two-part question: First, can you automatically update the Labels field depending on the content of a different field? Second, how to know what exactly to put into the Labels field. The first question is easily answered: Yes, that's possible and really easy with Jira automation.

The second part is where it gets a bit more tricky. Jira automation has a feature called Smart Values that allow you to parse text fields. You can use that to look through the description and find what you are looking for.There is a match()-function with smart values, so you can use regular expressions. 

Hope that helps,

Hi @Wroblewski, Arkadiusz and welcome to the community,

Do you want to know if there is a way to get the values/words from a text field to the labels field?

Yes, but the case is, Failure Number and location are mostly other, so there's possibility for Automatisation of this process ?
