Auto Populate Label from Another Fields

We are looking to auto populate the label field with the value from a custom field using the JIRA built in project automation. Does anyone know how to do this? The custom field is variable so it would be filling out that field then that field would populate the label.

Hi @Danielle Mather 

In your rule add "Edit issue field" action and in the additional fields use this JSON.

"fields": {
"labels": [
{{#issue.labels}}"{{.}}", {{/}}
"{{issue.Custom Field.value}}"


This will append custom field value to existing labels. Make sure the value is valid so label can accept it.


@Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ 

Automatically populate the Labels field:  We would like to have the "Labels" field automatically populated with the value "In-Progress", when a story is moved into the Analysis column.  The label should be added to any other values which are previously there.
