Update summary with JIRA issue key when the issue is created

I need to have the issue key in the end of summary when a issue is created.

Have tried to do this with an Post function on the transaction to open issue.

But I don't find documentation of available variables to use.

Tried following: The Summary of the issue will be set to issue.summary + issue.key.

But it did not work. Any tips?

We are using Cloud version of JIRA.

Hi Jan,


This is exactly the kind of use case we built ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud for. Use the modify issue post function with the following code:

issueInput.fields.summary = "${issue.summary} ${issue.key}"

Any issue fields can be read or set in this way not just the system fields.
