Dynamic variables from Jira fields
You can define a dynamic variable using a Jira field key. A variable defined this way has the same name and options as the field on the issue crate screen of the target project.
You can optionally name a variable, otherwise it’s going to have the same name as the name of the Jira field.
You can find all the keys here -
Date Time Picker=[:customfield_11620]
Text Field (multi-line)=[My custom name:customfield_11606]
You can create Jira fields with a
[:customfield_Id] placeholder. Such a placeholder is converted into a variable of the same type as the field. The field needs to be visible.
This variable isn’t generated on the Create from template screen if a field:
- has limited context.
- isn’t added to the Create screen.
- is hidden in a project.
Most common fields are supported, including system and custom fields.
If a field type is a supported dynamic variable type, it’s displayed using a dedicated component, for example, the Due date field
(:duedate) has the same type as the
:date variable, so it’s displayed as a Date Picker.
Otherwise, it’ll be displayed as a simple text field.
The labels field is displayed as a text field. You can pass values separated by comas to create new labels.
How to pass values selected in variables to Jira fields
Use Smart defaults. Use a variable accessor with the name of a variable, or the name of the field if it’s not given.
