How to set short prefix in front of summary field ?


Via automation I can set prefix in front of summary, for example when creating user requirement type of issue I'm getting User Requirement  - <tittle> issue as a result. For this I'm using {{}} - {{issue.summary}} as a jql.

Target of mine would be to use shorter term for user requirement ex. UR - <title>, is this possible with jql ?

Hi @Jouni Riimala ,

in general you should be able to do it, but with the usage of conditions in automation rule.

Something like:

If: Issue Type equals User Requirement

Then: Edit issue fields: Summary = UR - {{issue.summary}}

Else-If: Issue Type equals Story

Then: Edit issue fields: Summary = ST - {{issue.summary}}


Thx, make sense. Need to experiment with this.
