How to update a field based on filled cascading field using Jira automation?

I need to set a automation rule which does the following: When a user creates a new issue and selects the service and product area (cascading field), the squad (list field) need to be automatically filled.

I can not find a way to do this. Is there a way to just write the raw code for the automation or do I always have to use the predefined automation option in Jira Software?

Hi @Danilo Simic  and welcome to the community,

guess there is no other way round than working with IF/ELSE blocks. Please have a look at this question where we discussed a solution that seems very similar to your problem/requirement.

I´m not familiar with Scriptrunner but I guess with Scriptrunner you could just write your automation in raw code.



Hi there,

I’ve linked your suggestion to a related feature request, which counts as an upvote for this ticket:

Thanks for letting us know.
