Hi Luvo,

In order to do this you will need to use one of the plugins that allow you to set a field as a postfunction on a workflow. There are several that will allow you to achieve this so it is worth checking if you have any already installed. For example...

JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions

JIRA Workflow Toolbox

ScriptRunner for JIRA. 

Hope this helps
