Automatic update of a new field based on values in another field

Trying to implement a requirement where if a field gets updated with the value automatically based on existing data in other fields.


For example, lets say there are 2 fields Field A, B,.

A is a standard field and B is Custom field


I need to set B to value based on value of A

Like if A = 1 Set B = 100

if  A = 2 Set B =100

If A= 3 Set B =200 etc..

Any idea how this  can be done in JIRA Cloud?

Hello Mahesh,

Welcome to Atlassian community!

Are you expecting the field B to update as soon as you add the value to the field A or after you finish the field edit?

Unfortunately, JIRA does not have this feature natively, however, you can use Automation for JIRA add-on to achieve it. You just need to create the following rule.

With the rule above, the field will be automatically updated after the edit is finished and will replace any possible value manually added during the issue edit in the Field B.

P.S: I used the field Application as field A and Begin Date as field B.

Let us know if this information helps.

Hi Petter,

Thank you for this method.
I implemented it today and that's work very well.

I would like to run this automatic rule only once for a list of tickets, to put value FieldA on FieldB. Do you know-how could do that?


Hello @Soumya Djefel

You can ensure the rule runs only once for your issues by adding a custom field to identify those issues and create a condition in your automation rule. These would be the exact steps:

  1. Create a custom field to identify the issues that were already updated by the rule. This can be a text field.
  2. Keep the field hidden on your project screens, so users can not edit or see it
  3. Create the following automation rule, blocking the rule if it is running for the second time, and editing the custom field with the value if this is the first time:
