Auto Populate component

Hi,

i want to auto populate Component value for my project if issue type is equal to Task.

i know we can do this through automation, but automation works after creating the issue right? but when i select task issue type while creating issue, component should be auto populate. i know we can do this through Behaviors but i'm not able to achieve this. please find my script.

 

getFieldById("components").setValue(Youtube);
i selected run script on Load on create view.

yes Automation runs post create, though unsure why that is an issue here. Assuming you are using a company managed project, you could use a different workflow for Task, basically a copy of the current one, and add a Post function to set the Component. This also saves on automation rules too.

Post function will update the component value after issue creation right? but i want it to be the default value while creating issue.

We resolved that by creating the  Dynamic Forms for Jira.  You can conditionally set field value at the create screen and also make selected fields visible only if the defined conditions (like issue type or specific field value) are met.

@CHINNAMUTHEVISAI_SATYANARAYANASHARMA ,

While Automation happens post-event, workflow post functions apply during the create when placed on the create transition/event. This will achieve your goal.
