Create a conditional Jira Automation from one custom field to populate another custom field

Nicole_Selph May 20, 2024

I have been searching the community but haven't found exactly what I am looking for, so hopefully I can get a bite reaching out through here.

Currently, our team uses "t-shirt" sizing to equate to a level of effort. In the past this has been fine. Now, I am trying to create an automation that will help our team equate the t-shirt sizing to actual level of effort.

What I am wanting to accomplish and clearly failing at is this:

If custom field "T-shirt size" equals to "small", then set numerical custom field "Level of Effort" to "5"

Is this something that is possible to do in Automation? I am VERY new to Jira, but would love to make this work if possible.

Hi @Nicole_Selph,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Yes, this is something that can be done via automation and it should be fairly straightforward to do. I would trigger on field changed on the t-shirt field and then use the IF/Else condition to change the other field corresponding to the size picked. Your automation would look something like this:
