Automation for Jira Change the Assignee from a custom field

I need to make the assignee base off a custom field (user picker)  :

Trigger: When issue is created

If: Status equal (status of choice)

AND: Assignee is Empty 

custom field (user picker) = assignee 

 

How can this be done(smart value) (JQL)

Can you use smart values to access data from another issue? Something like {{issuekey.customfield_12345}}

Yes,

I found this late last night of the use of smart value but I found that you don't have to use the custom field_id#

so what I got was {{issue.custom field name}} and if you need it to display information in the smart value just add .displayName}} 

Thanks for your reply

Hi,

In automation for jira (project automation) you can use smart value like {{issue.customfield_12345}}.
