I need help in copying a certain text from summary of an issue to a custom field in JIRA Cloud.

For Eg: 

Summary : "Report of Oct 2020 :: Company ABC"

I wanted to store "Company ABC" in a certain custom field.

I am using : "Email this issue" plugin and Automation plugin.

Hi @harsh_bhardwaj , 


you can achieve this with Automation for Jira using Smart Values :

  • Create a new rule
  • Select "Issue Created" as a trigger
  • Set a new action to "Edit Issue"
  • Select the field you need to copy your text to, and use this value : {{issue.summary.replaceAll(".*::","")}}

Have a look at the screenshot of my rule, I just tested it and it works fine :

Let me know if this helps, 



Thanks you so much @Alexis Robert . It is working for me, cheers.
