Hi Lee,

Unfortunately, that field is not available yet for Bulk Update or Automation Rules. Not aware of a timeline when it will be either.

Hi @Lee Street 

The field is there for me in bulk edit.

It won't show up if you have Sub-tasks in the filter (as these should inherent Team from the parent), but if you exclude them it's available.

---

You can also use Automation for this, you can set a Team via advanced editing on the Edit Issues action.

The JSON would look like this...

{
"fields": {
"customfield_10001":"4y2469q0-2pa5-4wr3-941q-8e6ty478di7r"

}
}

---

In this instance...

  • customfield_10001 is the field ID for the Team field
  • 4y24... is the Team ID, which you can find in your Team's URL - .../jira/people/team/<team ID here>

---

Let us know if this works for you!

Hi @Lee Street

I don't know if this problem, in itself, justifies additional tooling for you, but just to put it out there: If you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, this works as expected in the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields - including the team field - much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also supports bulk editing via copy/paste, like so:

You can update any number of issues in one action, so you should be done with your work in no time. I should add that JXL can do much more than that: From support for configurable issue hierarchies, to issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting.

Any questions just let me know,

Best,

Hannes

I was looking for a free solution.  Thanks for the heads up on the App though
