How to use different checklists based on label selected for Jira task ?

Is there a way , where we can have different checklist enabled based on Label's tagged while creating Jira issue . 

Eg : Task 1 if i choose Label A , then checklist A should be added in task .

        Task 2 if i choose Label B , Then checklist B should be added in the task 


Or any other way i can achieve this instead of manually selecting the checklist template for each task created .

Hi @Salma Begum !


If you're using Smart Checklist Pro or Smart Checklist Free, there's a way to achieve this with Automation. Use the trigger of issue creation, then a condition for the label(s) to match your value(s) and add a formatted checklist into the field value. I'm attaching the screenshot of the automation and the result. Hope this helps!

Hi @Salma Begum

If you use Issue Checklist Pro or Issue Checklist Free, then we have a short guide explaining how to achieve what you need in Jira Automation:

Thank you so much for this . I was able to complete the Automation as per the instructions in the document . 

 But the triggers worked only the first time . 

 The next time i created the issue , It gave a response that it did not match the requirement ? 

And where it was successful the checklist came in history like this

 I am missing something . I implemented all steps exactly as mentioned in the document
