Automatically add Issue field values as Labels Edited


I'd would like certain issue custom fields to be added to the labels automatically.


  • Issue: PRO-001
    • Custom Field1: "Red"
    • Customer Field2: "Large"
    • Labels: "Red", "Large"

I've tried to do this through the Automation tool without any success. Help?

Thank you

HI @António Mourão 

This should be doable. 

Can you share a screenshot of your automation rule and of any audit log entries, to make it easier for us to try and assist?

Have a read of the section on Custom fields here: Smart values - general | Jira Software Cloud | Atlassian Support

I suspect you will need something like the below

Note: I've used a custom field "Program Increment" and focused on "PI-3" as the value (if populated) that I would want as a label.
