Can I set a different default value for a custom field for different issue types?

I have a custom field called "Case type".  It can be set to Support, Implementation or Warranty.  Default value is Support.  Can this be changed based on Issue Type?  This value is set/changed by the user when the issue is created.  If not Issue type, is there some other setup that can control this request?

Thank you.

Not using custom field contexts since you can only have one of those per project. Could be done with a scripted post function using ScriptRunner or similar

You should be able to do this with Behaviour plugin (which comes with Script runner). Check some examples here https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/4.3.0/jira/recipes/behaviours/

You cant use context since there can be only one context for a project. So with behaviour you can create different behaviours for each issue type for a project. 

Go through examples and try to build a script for your requirement.
