Calculated Values in Issue Templates for Jira app: Use Smart Defaults in a template (part 2/2)

Attention! We are thrilled to announce the introduction of a cutting-edge onboarding process for our top-selling product, Issue Templates for Jira Cloud. As a Jira Administrator, you now have the opportunity to embark on a step-by-step learning journey to unleash the full power of this app 🚀.

No Jira Admin? No problem - we have a solution for you too!

We are progressively releasing the onboarding process on the Atlassian Community.

This is the last part of our onboarding project (at least for now (smile)). Today we will learn how to use Smart Defaults functionality in a template

With smart defaults, you can calculate the field’s value at the time when an issue is created from the template. You can, for instance, configure a template that would automate the process of:

  • filling the starting date
  • setting a deadline
  • setting a reporter and assigning an issue to a specific role or person
  • creating a label
  • setting a version

You can also prepare a timeline for complex tasks with multiple steps or link an epic with smart defaults.


To configure it simply click Smart Defaults in the template’s issue details view and an issue field you want to add smart defaults for.

See how it works by clicking the link below:
