copy Select List (single choice) to Component(s)


I have a custom field that is a Select List (single choice), 

When this is selected in Jira Service Desk, I want the selected value to be copied to the Components field in a new, different Software project. 


How can I accomplish this? 


I've tried adding the {{customfield_10188}} to the components field as an automation within service desk as well as in the end project when an issue is created. 

but I cant get it to work. 

How do I pick the selected option from custom field, to populate Components?

From the Automation section in the end project the issue is moving in to, make sure that you set a the smart value of your custom field in the Components field to copy. 

Also make sure that you check the box to let other rules trigger this rule.

Hi Thomas,

I don't know that this is going to be possible. Maybe with the Additional fields (JSON) section. 

There is this open feature request that you can vote for and follow:

Can you share the rule that you have so far? 

Hi John! 

I ended up solving this myself with my own automation.
