Automating Epic Link Field



When an issue is created with a specific keyword in the description, it will add multiple current dates to multiple fields. One of those fields is Epic Link. This is currently treated like a drop down list as you input manually. However, we have a monthly maintenance epic (Ex. Monthly Maintenance June 2022). As I create these issues based on the keyword condition, I would like the automation to apply the current month epic without needing intervention from a user manually.

Current Attempt:

Included smart values in a JQL and/or Automation action to Edit Issue -> Epic Link which may be the way to go, however, not sure on the syntax in this case.

{{now.monthOfYear}} and {{now.year}}


Side Note: Potentially want the same thing for Dates and Times but that's the next hurdle. This answer might answer for those as well.
