Post function on transition - alter copy field value

The scene:
I have a transition from Open -> Closed.
I have 2 issue types 'Fixable' and 'Random'.

The Issue:
I want to create a post function so that on transition from open to closed the 'resolved' field is updated based on the issue type. So that:
'fixable' implies that the resolution should be 'fixed'
'random' implies that the resolution should be 'invalid'

Is there anyway to alter the field you are copying over? Alternatively, I could just 'update' the field, but there doesn't seem to be a way to update the field based on some other field.

Is there a way to do something like this?

Hey Aram, the JIRA server has a JIRA Workflow Toolbox plugin allows these functions using a post function called Set a Field as a Function of other Fields. Try looking for a plugin with this kind of capability to JIRA Cloud. 

Hey Peter, Yeah, that's the main issue. We need this through cloud. Although your solution and plenty of other ones (e.g. groovy) exist for non-cloud installations, I'd need a cloud specific one.
