Autofill

Learn about Issue Templates’ most basic feature.

Autofill allows you to fill in issue fields with values predefined in a template.

You decide exactly which fields should be copied from the template and define their contents:

Steps

To choose fields that should be autofilled in a template:

  1. Go to your Template Repository project.
  2. Select a template to open the Template Details panel to the right.
  3. Go to the Fields tab.
  4. Make the changes (they will be saved in real-time).

More complex operations (like copying sub-tasks or using the Attachment and Issue Link fields in your templates) require adding the Create Structure post function to your target project’s workflow. Read more about it in the next chapter.
