Can you add a default role to a custom field?

We want to create project roles and have the users in these roles for a project added by default to specific custom fields when an issue is created. Users will differ per project

For example: Tech Lead is the custom role. Tech Assignee is the custom field. When creating the issue, the Tech Lead role would be added by default to the Tech Assignee field. Or the user(s) that are in that role would be added to the field.

You'll need code to do this.  The code would need to extract users from the role for the current project, and then add them to the multi-user picker that is "tech assignee".

I'm afraid you can't add that sort of code to Cloud

ok thanks - so there is no post function that could be created to make this work?

Yes, lots, but none you can install on Cloud that I know of.
