Jira Cloud restrictions with Custom Fields's descriptions


In JIRA there is the possibility to run a javascript on description fields for any customfield as described in this document: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Setting+Priority+field+value+based+on+customfield+value.


is the same available for JIRA cloud instance? The main aim for me is to generate an automatic priority based on urgency and severity. Is this possible via JIRA Cloud?


let me know and thanks in advance,

Running javascript on description is not possible in Cloud. Can't think of a plugin (in Cloud) that can help you either.
