Hello @Mohamed Benziane 

Thanks for the answer, 
I have a follow up question:

I want to add prefix on the summary, team wise

Egs: If I select "QA" while creating any issue type then it should add 'QA' as prefix to all the issue types where QA has been selected under Teams section.

Similarly, for 'UX' , 'DevOps' etc.

I want Summary to be updated with initials of the teams ( which is creating any issue type)

Can you please suggest how can we do that?

Hi Mohd,

Same as above, from your Project Settings, Automation, create a new rule/or edit your exising rule,

  • choose trigger as "Issue Created"
  • add "New Action" edit issue
  • edit Summary field: 
    {{issue.Teams}} - {{issue.Summary}}

Note: If your custom field is named "My Team Custom Field Name", use {{issue.My Team Custom Field Name}} - {{issue.Summary}}

You can read more about Jira Automation smart values.


Hope that helps.
