Smart value of Team name for an issue

I am trying to get the Team name smart value from the issue. Looking at the api the teams is a custom field that is only returning a numeric id and no name or description. What could be the reason for that? 

My Jira admin said that teams is a system field and therefore is different than a custom field. If that is true then is there a way to get the name of the team as a smart value?

Hi @Harmeet Singh 

Not sure but have you tried .id or .value behind the custom field? Like:


You could also take a look at this documentation -> 


Hey @Kristjan Geir Mathiesen - Origo ,

Yes I have tried that and since that api does not have the custom field as an object therefore the id and value is just null. 

Sorry @Harmeet Singh  then I am stumped :/

Hope someone can help you out,

Hi @Harmeet Singh

I am under the impression that Teams is still in EAP and, as such, isn't supported by Automation yet.
