Hello @roy_as,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The post functions on a workflow can be added on transitions and not depending on the values of fields. In this case, the best option is to use an automation rule. 

Please, go to Project settings > Automation and create a rule like the one below:

The description field has a Markdown editor, so the table will have this syntax:

| Syntax      | Description |

| ----------- | ----------- |

| Header      | Title       |

| Paragraph   | Text        |

This is the result:

Also, it’s important to add the smart value {{issue.description}}, so the automation will keep the current description and add a table.

Kind regards,
