How can I set default Summay field in JIRA Cloud?

I've created a project that doesn't need a summary field so I would like to have Summary autopopulated with something generic for all issues. I've researched some and cannot find a difinitive answer for JIRA Cloud.

Is this possible?

Hi Davina, you can achieve that by using a post function in the 'create' transition. You can read more about this at Using a post function to set a field.

I hope this helps!



Create goes to my next step. Not seeing where you would place this post function. Summary is a required field on the initial Create screen.

Can you elaborate?



Any additional information available?

I have the same question.  And there is no pre-function so since the summary is required, it cannot be set in the post function.  Is there another way?

You'd have to run a script at creation time. I believe the cloud now has scripting. Just curious, if you don't use the summary field how do you identify the issue?

That's the same thing I asked my user owner.  We are replacing SyncNotes with JIRA.  They will use it to manage requests for loan equipment.  However, there is a dropdown list to manage what equipment they are loaning.  

I have an on-premise instance of JIRA, not cloud.  And all the scripting I've seen requires additional $.  I do not want to invest for this one small function.  Just curious if there is a way to do it at creation time.

Thanks for your reply.
