Hi @rbalamu2 

There is no concept of a "default" Component in Jira. 

But you can use an Automation Rule to Edit the issue and add the Component after it gets created. 

Or you can add a Post Function to the Create Transition for your work flow to add the component when the issue is created. 

Hi @John M Funk ,
Can you help me set a post function to create Transition for your work flow to add the component when the issue is created.

Hi @rbalamu2  - My apologies, I actually use the JMWE add-on to set the Components field using a post function. The out of the box options are not available for components. 

Okay. No problem.
I used Automation to satisfy my need :) Thanks!

Very good - that's the route I would prefer to use anyway.  That way if your project has multiple workflows, you don't have to update and maintain everyone of them.  :-)
