When a JIRA Issue is created automatically fill in Summary

Is it possible that when you create an issue in JIRA Cloud that a standard Summary is entered? Is it possible to change the value of Summary to Today's Date & a Dedicated variable such as. Jan 5 Final Inspection = Summary.

Thanks. Is there a way after they save it (Post Function) to automatically today's date to summary?

Right now I am using a post function of: The Summary of the issue will be set to Final Inspection Issue.

I would it to be:   Jan 5 Final Inspection Issue.

Thanks For ALL the help

No, you need code to do anything more than "set value to x", which you can't do in Cloud.

Yes Dana. Please add the following code on Create transition of workflow

This can be added only if you have script runner plugin installed. Select Custom Script Post Function and add following code.

issue.summary = 'xyz'

They're on Cloud, where there is no script runner. And that will fail even if you do. You're setting the summary *after* validation. Summary is mandatory so if the user leaves it blank, it won't get as far as the code. If they do enter something, they're going to get annoyed that you're destroying what they enter.

As far as I know there's no real way to do this in JIRA Cloud.
