Add a new value choice to a multiselect field via Automation?

Patrice Cantalupo June 8, 2023

It seems like JPD doesn't have the ability to add automation for multi-select fields yet, can someone help with getting me to the right JSON to use, what I have right now is throwing an error.

Basically when a specific type of issue is updated (with a certain field value), then I want to automatically update another field with a new value that is equal to the issue summary for the idea that triggered the work flow.  

E.g. I create a new issue with summary "Test" -> I update the 'product type' field (a custom field in our project) to equal "Special" -> Automation is triggered to add a new value, called "Test" to the 'special list' field (a different custom field in our project)

This is the JSON I tried that isn't working to update the ' Special list' field
"update": {
        "Special List": [{
                "add": "{{issue.Summary}}"

Hi@Patrice Cantalupo , I believe you have to reference your custom field by id, instead of by name.

See the examples here:

I hope this gets you a step further ;-)
