Add label after Issuetype changed


i need to add a label after the issuetype was edited.

e.g.: Issue Type:"Bug" changed to Issue Type"Improvement" -> the issue gets the label "issuetypeimprovement"

How can I accomplish it?

PS: I'm pretty new to JIRA.

This is not possible out of the box. You have to implement a listener to listen on events triggered by moving an issue or implement a service which search every x minutes for issues which are from type Improvement and were from type Bug and than add the label to it.

Do you need the label only for moved issues? Or for all issues of type Improvement? Im asking because I can't image a situation where I need a label which says the same as the issuetype. Maybe if you describe your use case there are better solutions...
