Hi @Olof Nysten welcome on the community. Can you describe the whole proces in more detail?

Issues are created automatically with description which contains table? How do you want to process it?

Thank you.

The issues are created from incoming e-mails. These e-mails contains a table with all the information I need for custom fields. These field are then used in integrations with other systems.

As there are hundreds of issues created, it would be great if I can create an automation that fills the custom fields.

Hi @Olof Nysten , thank you for the information. Give me few days, I will try to play with it a little... I'm quite curious :)

I logged my description to find out what is its format and it was:

|greeting|Hello| |name|Martin| |last name|Bayer|

 I hope it will help... :)
