Add assignement in check list based on custom field


i work on jira datacenter

I got a long check list with 30 items, all need assignement, and i got a custom field based on jira user call "manager"


I want to assign automaticaly some task in the checklist to the person who is selected in the field.

I saw something in automation but it doesnt work.


have you any clue to add assignement of a task base on the value in a custom field ??

Hi Hervé,

Sadly, there is a limitation to the engine used by Smart Values that makes it impossible to achieve what you are looking for using Automation.

To give context, you can update your items conditionally using the Additional fields section of an Edit issue action. We have an example in our documentation here.

The problem comes when you try to use a Smart Value that comes from outside the loop's context. Those Smart Values always yield as empty, so in your case your items would always get their assigned user removed.

We have a feature request active to conditionally update checklist items in an Automation action, which would bypass this limitation. I suggest you vote and/or comment on the feature to help us prioritize our upcoming features.

In the meanwhile, you could try your hand with a scripting approach using either Groovy or SIL scripts

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

Kind regards,
