Can Automation for JIRA assign a task to the next available fixVersion?

We use to automatically log JIRA tasks for our mobile projects. Ideally I would like to automatically assign the fixVersion and affectsVersion.

In our case we have a versioning scheme of Major.Minor.Patch (i.e. 2.6.5) and the affectsVersion would be the last released version. The fixVersion would be the first unreleased version.

Is this possible at all to configure via Automation?

Just an update on this:

You can now set the fix version to the following options: "Last released version", "Next unreleased version"
