Is it possible to populate a field, based on the value selected from another field?

Hi All,

I am trying to find out if there is a way to populate the value of one field in Jira, based on what is selected in a different field.

i.e. when talking to product owners, we use T-shirt size for estimation to make it easier for them to get their head around the size of their request. We then relate that back to story points for the Scrum Team. e.g. xs = 2 points, s = 4 points, M = 8 points etc.

I have added a custom field "Estimated Size", and ideally, I'd like this to be able to populate the "Story Points" field. Does anyone know if this is possible? And if so, how I could achieve it?

Thanks in advance!

On its homepage, it says it can

and this is what you need.
