Jira Automation setting Team field based on project

Afternoon all,


We would like to use automation to set the team field based on the project the issue is created in. I could add an if for each project (50plus), but was wondering if there is a quicker, smarter way to do this?

So a very ugly workaround is to add the team value to the project name and then set a smart value by using substring on the project name to get the team number. 

Not the best solution. is there a way to retrieve the project description field?




in the json, could I add a lookup list e.g. list of project key and the team number it relates to?

so for example if project key = ABC then the team value from the look up list e.g. ABC = 123, would be used to set the 

for now I have settled for using the project description field which I prefix with a special Char to identify the team id saved in the project description field. You can retrieve data from this field using {{project.description}} as a smart value.

Greetings @Dillon Weyer .

what field type is the "team field"?


It's the field created by Jira for plans and can't edit or view details as it's locked. If I query the field in JQL, the drop-down options are team names as entered, but once selected a numeric value is returned.
