Automation - Can't edit summary with smart value

jorgen_nordahl March 6, 2024


I'm going just a tiny bit insane. I have set up a bunch of rules that I am now trying to consolidate.

I simply can not get Jira to accept the following value as a summary:

To be deleted {{now.plusMonths(1).format("MMMM/yyyy")}}


The reason this is driving me insane is because I know it works. I already have it active on a separate manual trigger automation where the exact same syntax works just fine.

Hi @jorgen_nordahl 

Welcome back to the Atlassian Community forums!

I would report this back to Atlassian. Just tested an equivalent rule using the Edit issue fields action on a free and paid Jira Cloud plan and had no problems entering the expression. No error was shown at all.

In the meantime, I suggest you use the advanced "additional fields" editor (JSON-formatted) to set the summary field, as shown in the capture below:


Give it a try, and let us know how it goes ;)

Thanks man!

I found a stupid fix though, i just added a '.' at the end of the expression and it worked.
