Automatically Set Summary Field based on its Reporter


I just want to ask if there is a possibility to set the "Summary" field automatically when creating an issue. The value of the summary field will be based on the Reporter Field.

I am currently checking the Create Transition. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mark,

You'd have to do this through scripts. I found this answer that has some input on how to achieve some customization levels with the summary field and might help you out.
