Yes, you can do that with a script.

The snippet I have is

 import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelManager

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getUser()

LabelManager labelManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LabelManager)
def labels = labelManager.getLabels(issue.id).collect{it.getLabel()}
labels += 'new_label'
labelManager.setLabels(user.getDirectoryUser(),issue.id,labels.toSet(),false,false)

That code just sets the labels, you'll need to code "issue.summary to list of labels to add" for yourself.

ignore this let me try that

Hi Kaushal,

Hopefully the script Nic provided worked out for you.  If so please mark his answer as Accept Solution so others may benefit from the solution as well!

hi all 

i figured this out with the help of someone but can someone explain why we have to use print for this to work my code is below 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelManager

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getUser()

def summary = issue.summary
print(summary)

if (summary.startsWith("[test]"))
{
LabelManager labelManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LabelManager)
def labels = labelManager.getLabels(issue.id).collect{it.getLabel()}
def newlabel = summary.split(" ")[1]
print(newlabel)
labels += newlabel
labelManager.setLabels(user.getDirectoryUser(),issue.id,labels.toSet(),false,false)
}
