How to Set a Default Component when create a Issue?

As the title says, I want to auto fill a defaule component when create a issue. Can JIRA or some plugin can do this? I have searched for some old questions about this title, the answers are all negative. Is there some more achievements?

How do I set the component field to a default value for a create (before it's entered)

How to auto-assign a 'Component' default value when creating a new issue?

5 answers

Using a scriptrunner Behavior, I was able to assign a default component.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.*

// set Components
def projectComponentManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager()
def components = projectComponentManager.findAllForProject(
def component = getFieldById(COMPONENTS)
if (! component.getValue()) {
component.setFormValue(components.findAll { in ["Component name from the list"] }*.id)


You can also assign multiple components by changing the ["Component name from the list"] to ["Component name from the list", "Other component name"]

this worked for me, thanks :)


Try this as post-function:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def projectComponentManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager()
def component = projectComponentManager.findByComponentName(, "YOUR COMPONENT HERE")

I would also like to know if this is possible. Its seems that you can only set default values on custom fields.
