Hi Daniel,

I tried to do this, so I could write you good instructions, and found that "Labels" isn't one of those fields you can auto set with a post transition on the Create screen!  (That's how you'd do it for other standard fields and even custom fields via a plugin.)

Next, I did a quick Google search and found another Community post which seems to agree: you can't do it natively, but the plugin called "Script Runner for JIRA" might offer the ability.  

See: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/JIRA-questions/Is-there-a-way-to-automatically-add-a-Label-for-a-created-JIRA/qaq-p/244174 and https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/index.html

Otherwise, this sounds like a feature request for Atlassian!  You can log those at: https://jira.atlassian.com.

Cheers,

Rachel Wright
