I love the Jira Automation plugin, but it seems I am unable to use the smart values for the month description on the Summary field?
We have recurring tasks and I want to insert the name of the current month into the Summary, but whatever I tried with smart values, it was not satisfactory.
The best I've got are only numbers, like 1 for January, or the whole date-string for now, but I would need a descriptive name, like January, not just the number 1. I suppose it is possible to do this only with custom smart values? How would you do this?
You can use the .format(<date pattern>) smart function to achieve this.
This function uses the underlying Java data/time formatting patterns (available here).
For your specific scenario, you can use the following smart value:
You can use this it should works fine (it will return "January" in this case) :
Hope this helps
I found out that there are other possibilities of formatting the date, but just two to write the whole name of the month with other date data, but none just for the month..

I had a very similar issue in the past. I had a workaround using a postfunction which was able to modify the summery.
