Hi Michael -

To accomplish something like this, you'll likely need a scripting app to help you out like Automation for Jira, Script Runner, or Power Scripts.

With Power Scripts, an example might be something like:

summary = "["+priority+"] - "+assignee;

 When running this script from a post-function, the summary will be updated to look like (for example):

[Critical] - jiraUser

Thanks much.  Just wanted to be sure that it can't be done without a Plug-in.

Please bear in mind that however you do this, you will annoy your users, as you will be destroying the summary they entered on creation.
