How to use automation to check for a component name in a summary and add it into the component field

I am trying to set up an automation that recognizes a component name in the summary of a case and then adds that data into the component field of that case.

I can get the first bit done as follows.





The next stage is to edit the issue component field. But how do I carry through the data from the previous step? Is it even possible or has anyone got another suggestion as to how to do this?

I would suggest using a JQL condition in your automation rule of the following type :

NameOfYourTextField ~ "Name of your component" (The text field of your issue contains your component)

If the condition is validated, you can then set the component to the concerned issue.


Let me know if it helped,


Thanks for this.  I assume I will need to set up a rule per component then?

This works on a single component name

Summary ~ "Component Name"

Edit issue  Component  then choose the appropriate component.

Is that what you meant?
