Can we link two fields on a ticket making the value of one field a function of the value of another field?

We using JIRA Agile as well as JIRA and we are using the Business Value field to put tickets into different categories of our backlog (using the values of 1, 2, 3, 4).  However we cannot display the business value in plan mode on the individual lines for each story in JIRA Agile, so we are setting the priority based on business value and using the priority icon that does display as a work around.  How can we force the entry of a business value of 1, 2, 3, or 4 to cause a particular priority value to be set?

The easiest way to do this is probably using the JJUPIN plugin ( You can either use the Live Fields functionality to do this on the fly or create a post-function on a given transition. This plugin does cost money but I guarantee you'll find other uses that make it worth it.

You can go the free route by grabbing ScriptRunner ( but that will require a little more work in regards to writing either a groovy or js script.
