I would like to have a custom field set equal to project category when a ticket is created in this project.
So far, I do it in the workflow at the create transition with separate workflows each with the right value in a custom field set publication function.
My need is to set this custom field to a default value depending on global property of the project when the ticket is created in a unique workflow for all projects. And the unique global property of the project I see is the project category.
It seems that groovy script is a possibility, but it is beyond my knowledge of jira...
Any clue ?
You can use the Update Issue post-function of the Update on Transition for JIRA add-on, which allows for updating an issue based on various forms of conditional processing. Just set the condition based on the project_category variable described here, and then set your custom field as desired.
This recipe shows how to add a comment during a workflow transition, based on identifying issues with a particular type of link defined to the issue being transitioned. It's not exactly on point with what you're trying to do, but it should give you a good sense of how it will work.
This add-on saves from having to do (and maintain!) coding to do many things!
