How to populate the issue link (Url) in a custom field after creation of an issue? JIRA Cloud

Dear community,


I'm searching for advice on how to realize this requirement:


A established custom field on an issue type should get filled up with the Url (issue link) of the just created issue once it got successfully saved. 

Business background: The Url (link to the Jira issue) is needed to be synched with a connected system (via binding option) offering the option to run a report having the issue link available next to some data.


Steps taken into consideration so far:

1. custom field created with field type Url and made available on the respective screenscheme of the issue type

What to do next now...

I was thinking in the direction of getting use of the automation engine.

I gave it a try but failed with findig the right command to fetch the Url and populate in the custom field.

Any idea how to get this realized?

KInd regards

Hi @Faul Andreas,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

You are on the right track, this can be done with automation and is fairly straight forward. You can get the URL by using a smart value, {{issue.url}}, and then set that to the custom field like this:

Hi @Mikael Sandberg ,

thx for this warm welcome to the community:-)

Perfect start I'd as by following your suggestion we succeeded.
