Create custom field depending on other field value


I'm currently using Jira On Demand and I need to create a custom field "TEAM" automatically filled depending on the value of the issue Component.


I have Team A & Team B

I have 3 Components X, Y & Z

Components X & Y belong to the team A

Component Z to team B

if my issue component is Y, I want my custom field to be automatically set to "Team A"

How can I do that?

Thanks for your help.

I was hopping a solution can exists with my configuration :-)

Thanks for the answers.

you can update the custom field value using script or you can write a post function to update custom field depending on other custom field/system field value

Hi there,

For on demand instance, javascript injection is not allowed and checking from my own demand instance, there seems to be no such post function to change a value of a custom field based on another field.

There are some plugins that might do the things you need but is only available for the JIRA self hosted.

Hope this clarifies, thanks :)
