Hi Kapo,

This can be done via Automation for Jira's smart value capability.

The smart values you will need to access can be found via the link below.

that might not be work on my use case. As when HR fill out the onboarding ticket, we need to make sure user's firstname + lastname is less then 20 charactor. 

I found a way to implement length check via regular expression validator but not sure how to implement a calculated field for concatenate.

For example: we have three field


username [calculated field] = firstname + lastname

when username field are longer then 20 character, HR will not able to submit the ticket.

To accomplish your goals you'd need to procure an add on such as the one below.
