use smart value / variable in Workflow post function



Basic question: is it possible to use smart values in Workflow-post functions to set the value of a field ? 

I know how to set a static value to a field using post-functions but I won´t get it to work using smart values - I have just tried as in jira automation to enter {{}}

as a result exactly "{{}}" will be the value of the field


bit more information:

currently I am testing the atlassian user properties, set via API (currently just via Postman) 

Finally I am able to set a user property: {{}}

content of this smart value is: {office=Munich}

I want to set this value when a issue is created using a Jira Workflow instead of a Jira Automation.

Hello Felix,

I tried it also with different variables but without success.

I think it is not possible to use smart values or any other expression expect %%CURRENT_DATETIME%% and %%CURRENT_USER%%


Why don't you want to use a Jira Automation? 

Alternatively you can use Apps like JWT oder JMWE. Its possible to set variables with them..
