Hi Vasanth,

You can do that using an add-on like Automation For Jira or JMWE or ScriptRunner. Do you have any of those? 

Hi @John Funk 

thank you for the response .

yes , I have these three .

can you please assist me how to use .


Thank you

Sure - I would use Automation For Jira then. 

Create a rule based on Issue Created

Then add a New Action for Edit Issue

Select the Summary field

Then paste this in the field: {{issue.key}} {{}}

See if that works for you.  :-)

Thank you @


I will try this approach

Hi @John Funk 

can you please  let me know how it works in JMWE,ScriptRunner


Thank you

For both of those, you would add a Post Function on the Create transition. Following the guidance of the app for syntax. I do not use ScriptRunner so I wouldn't be help there, but support from other app would be able to guide you. 

Hi @vasanth ,

using JMWE, you can add a Set Field Value post-function on the Create transition, with this configuration:

  • Field: Summary
  • Value Type: Constant or Groovy Template
  • Value:
${issue.key} ${issue.get("issuetype").name}
