Hi @RNV Jira1 and welcome to the community!

Try the following, it worked for me:


  • Create a rule
  • Add as trigger "Field Value Change" and select all numeric fields you want to this rule to get triggered
  • Create a variable with a name "maxValue" and enter
  • Add a new action to edit the last single select field you want
  • Add the {{maxValue}} variable you created

Hi, @RNV Jira1 

Another solution, you can check if you're comfortable with Marketplace plugins, is Business Process Manager add-on, developed by my team.

For solving your case use Form Logic with if/then rules. Here is an example:


Hi @RNV Jira1  Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Are these (Field 1, Field 2, Field 3 and Field 4) number fields or single select list fields?
