How to add a value as drop down option in multi select custom field

Hi,

Is there any option to add a value as a drop down option in multi select custom field by Jira automation??

Scenario :

This automation will triggers when a fix version field is added and it will matches to regular expression (as per standard) and then this value should be added as a drop down option in one of the multi select custom field.

 

Thanks,

Raju

No, Automation is for updating issues and issue-related data.  It does not have any functions to do with system administration like re-configuring custom fields.

Hi @Seetham Mandapaka ,

as @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ already mentioned: the general automation rule actions are only capable dealing issue related data.

AND...

one thing that came to my mind would be calling a web-request in your automation rule. I‘m not an API specialist but the following approach might be worth giving it a shot:

Hope I could give some helpful input.

Best
Stefan
