I would like to auto-populate the summary field with a value of a customized field in the create issue screen. When creating an issue there is a custom drop down field which is required. The value of the drop down field should then appear in the summary field.
The purpose is that the user doesn't have to fill in the summery as it will be auto-populated
Many thanks! BR,
Another option is to do it after the create, which is easier to script for as a post-function will receive what the user finally settled on, there's no need for dynamic activity capture, but it does mean destroying what the user enters in the summary because they have to enter one to get that far. When I've done it this way in the past, I've added a custom field for what the user puts in as the summary and populated that with their input, so nothing is lost.
However, no-one really seems to like generated summaries as they tend not to be as useful as freely chosen text.
