Jira automation to assign Team on a jira


I see it is helpful to have the new field called team assigned on a jira ticket and it reflects in advanced road map view. The question I have is , can I prepopulate the field on creation. In my case it is one project and one team. I really do not want people to type in manually. What are the options in Jira automation ?

Kind Regards

Hi @Sahoo Manas (SEIT) 


Yeah, you can set an automation to define the id of the team when an issue is created. Check out this example:


  • You will define the Teams field in the Additional fields:


"fields": {


  • You might need to find the Team ID from Advanced Roadmaps

I did that using the rest API via browser And the CRTL+F searching for the team name and to obtain the id

customfield_10001":{"id":"1","title":"Test Team","isShared":true},

If this answer helps solve the problem, please come back and mark this answer as solved to help other community members with the same challenge. If not, you are welcome to share your thought process as well.



Is there any reason that "Team" field is not natively supported in the Automation creation? When I create a new action to "Edit Issue" I am not able to select the "Team" field for Advanced Roadmaps.

This is kind of a drag. Are there any plans to support this in the future?

Hi @Evan Reeves 

Using the JSON example from my previous answer you can edit any custom field. But yes, it'd be way easier to list advanced roadmaps fields directly.

I found this Suggestion on Public Jira that you might want to vote JSWCLOUD-19957



Worked for me, thanks a lot
