Hi Harry - One option might be to do it with an Automation For Jira rule. Are you in Cloud or Server?

Hi @John Funk 


That is what I am trying to do. This is Automation for Jira. 


I am using Cloud

Why are you trying to do it under More options? 

Are all 3 fields in the same issue?

Do a component for Edit issue

Select the Display Name field

Then in the Set value box, but in something like:

{{issue.First Name.value}} {{issue.Last Name.value}}

Or you can do:

{{issue.customfield_10210.displayName}} {{issue.customfield_10211.displayName}}

Thanks @John Funk 


That worked :)
