Can I use values from custom fields in an automation?

I would like to build an automation in Jira in which the value of the second field can be read from a user-defined field (cascading selection list) and written to "Assigned person". How does this work?

Check, specially where it talks about  {{issue.[Custom Field]}} 

@Emilia yes you can do that. You need to create automation to copy a value from the field which u want to another Field (this field should be text field) using Custom field number and use smart values.

check these


Let me know if this helps
