Automated worklog description Edited

Is there a way to automate the worklog description? 

for example if worked is logged an the worklog.comment field is empty to add there the issue.summary?

Hi @Marcel Kollek  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

At this time, it is not possible to edit worklogs with an action using JSON.  Here is the suggestion to add the feature:

As an elaborate work-around, you could send a web request to call the REST API, passing in the worklog ID, to edit the entry.  Here is some information if you want to try that approach:

Of note for your condition test on empty comments, there is an open defect related to text fields which have been cleared, and so the EMPTY test does not work in that case:

As a work-around for that issue, consider updating your condition test to confirm if the comment length is zero: {{issue.worklog.last.comment.length()|0}} equals 0

Best regards,
