Syntax for JQL for Lookup Issues for Custom Fields

I have custom fields called "Next Assembly-1", "Next Assembly-2" and so on until "Next Assembly-10".

I'm trying to set up automation that if the value of any of these gets updated then a JQL search for all the Issues within the project whose Summary is the value of these 'next assembly' fields 

The JQL query is

project = GA18 AND (Summary ~ "triggerissue.Next Assembly-1" OR Summary ~ "triggerissue.Next Assembly-2")


Of course something is wrong with the syntax. Can someone help correct this?

Hi @Mahima Srivastav , 


if you want your custom fields to be used as variables for your JQL search inside an automation, you should use the Smart Value syntax, for example a custom field named "Team Leader" : 

{{issue.Team Leader}}


You can have a look at the documentation here :


Let me know if this helps,
