How to Set Transition Fields for Cascadeing Field on Transition Action? Automation for JIRA Plugin

I am trying to set up an automation rule to transition items based on JQL. This transition has a screen made for it to select values from a cascading field. How would I set these in the transition fields portion of the automation rule?

Hi Cole,

So to update a cascading select field, you have to use the 'Advanced' section for now on the 'Transition issue' action.

This question (and answer) shows you an example of how to do this: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Atlassian-Marketplace-questions/How-can-I-copy-a-cascading-select-value-with-Automation-for-JIRA/qaq-p/585395

In your example, you can replace the right hand side of the parent and child value with the actual option names you want to select in the cascading select.

So replace '{{triggerIssue.fields.Sample Cascade.value}}' with say 'Colors' and '{{triggerIssue.fields.Sample Cascade.child.value}}' with 'Blue' (if your cascading select has a parent value 'Colors' and a child value 'Blue').

Cheers,
  Andreas
