Updating custom fields during Workflow Transition

I am trying to to use the Jira suite utilities to update a custom field based on the value of the issue id. I am unable to do so using 'Update Issue Custom Field' option with the Jira suite utilities using the Post functions of the transition.

From what I see it supports only a restricted set of macros and that too cannot be prefixed or suffized with any other strings

'%%CURRENT_USER%%'
'%%CURRENT_DATETIME%%'
'%%ADD_CURRENT_USER%%'

Is there way we can use Post Transition functions to set the custom text filed value as a concatenated value of user defined static string and the issue id.
