Is there a "pre-function" in workflow? Similar to the "Post Function" assign function

 Need this function in workflow to assign value to custom fields before it is fired.

No, as "pre function" is nonsense.  I think you mean you want to have default selections for values in fields.

JIRA has default values for issue create. 

It does not do default selections for edit or transition screens because forcing a default over the top of potentially currently correctly set fields would break your data and upset the users.
