Hi, @Amit Kumar Singh 

If you have scriptrunner, you can add postfunction, that transforms values in fields to uppercase.

Or, if you don't have scriptrunner, but have Jira Automation, you can create rules, which will transform text to uppercase on issue creation (for example).

Trigger: when issue create

Rule: edit issue, set summary with this: {{issue.summary.toUpperCase()}}

@Evgeniy  i have tried scriptrunner but don't find any option "transforms values in fields to uppercase" under post function which i used available in workflow transaction option.

i tried Jira Automation rule but don't succeed over there as well, 

i am Jira Admin but i rarely use these options, could you please help me to do this through one of the available easy options?

@Amit Kumar Singh add this postfunction: Custom script post-function

For example, for uppercasing of description and summary you can use this:

issue.setSummary(issue.getSummary().toUpperCase())
issue.setDescription(issue.getDescription().toUpperCase())

Hi @Amit Kumar Singh

You may want to use Jira Automation to do it.  

Trigger - Field Value Changed

Action - Use the smart values to edit the field Capitalize-> https://support.atlassian.com/cloud-automation/docs/jira-smart-values-text-fields/ 

Hope this helps.

@Amit Kumar Singh

You will have to get the edit action and add the smart value formula to the field you want it to apply.
