Jira Automation - Grep/regular expression body and append result to summary field

So does anyone know if this is possible using jira automation.  


  1. Ticket is created
  2. in the ticket body/description there is the following text
    1. data1: <data-text>
  3. I want to use a regular expression to get the <data-text>
  4. Then take those results and append it to the summary field

You can't do this with basic Jira automation tool. Use additional apps for this: ScriptRunner or Power Scripts. They might be useful to you in the future if you want to extend the functionality of Jira out of the box.

If you are asking about the Automation for Jira (Lite or Pro versions for server), you can do that with the match() function.  Please look here for more information:
