Drop down custom field to auto-populate Description field?

Issue #950 resolved

created an issue

At the create screen, when a user selects a custom field (we’ll call it ‘Mood type’). A drop down will prompt them to select one of the following moods, and if they select ‘Happy’. We would like the Description field to auto-populate a text (which will be a template of questions).

Does your plugin allow us to auto populate a text to the Description field based on the custom field selection?

    Hi @Erica,

    You can use "Copy a parsed text to a field" with the following configuration:

    In my example %{10002} is field code for custom field "Mood type". Custom field codes depend on each particular JIRA instance.

    In this example I'm appending the questionnaire to the end of current value of the Description of the issue. Field code for Description is %{00001}. This field code is the same for all JIRA instances, since it's not a custom field, but a system field.
