Extract characters from Summary and place them into a specific field


I would like to create the following automation in my project:

If jira summary contains ISSUE=123456, I would like to extract 123456 and automatically place this value in another field.

I have tried the issue.description.match but I am not getting any results.

Can you please help?

Thank you,

Hi @Renata Izzo

You can use jira automation and use the smart value text functions to copy the extracted string to the new custom field. Link:
