Hello @Abhishree Nagesh

Thank you for reaching out.

Per your description, it seems you have configured an automation rule to send an e-mail containing a custom field value when your issues reach a specific status, however, you are not being able to properly add the smart value syntax to add the custom field value in the e-mail message. Is that correct?

As you can see in the documentation below, the syntax to add a custom field smart value would be {{issue.My custom field name}}

Accessing issue fields 

If there are multiple custom fields with the same name or have the same name as a system field, you can also use the custom field id. {{issue.customfield_10001}}.

To find the custom field id, you can navigate to Jira Settings > Issues > Custom fields > find the custom field and click to Configure. The Custom Field ID should appear at the URL of the page.

Here's a practical Example:

1 - I created the following rule:
