Autofill

Learn about Issue Templates’ most basic feature

Autofill allows you to automatically fill in issue fields with values predefined in a template. You decide exactly which fields should be copied from the template and you can define their contents.

Info

Autofill works with regular Jira fields, as well as with custom fields. Learn more in the Supported fields chapter.

Defining a set of fields

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).

Different set of fields for post function

More complex operations (like copying subtasks 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.
