This widget could not be displayed.

Best way to do is probably post-function with script runner (groovy runner):

1. Download/install script runner https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner

2. In the workflow at Create (Click Open then click Create), click add on post function tab, click "Script post function"

3. Create a groovy script (bunch of example in marketplace page) and put the path of that groovy script in here

Hope this helps!
