Jira allows us to create projects and issue types which a number of fields associated with them.
- set a default value for a jira issue tracker integration.
Below is an extract of what your issue type inside jira may look like.
If we wish to add this field, we can do so via the 'fields > search all fields' action menu on the right hand side.
Once we have a working, integrated Jira configuration (Linking to Issue Trackers) we can setup default value.
Firstly, lets navigate to the issue tracker settings at whatever scope we wish to configure a default value (global, project, countermeasure etc.) we will find a 'default values' section (this may be under 'Configure Issues').
we can simply choose 'Add Jira Issue field' which will pull all potential fields from our jira issue type inside that project.
Simply choose the field we wish to bring in and set an appropriate value. Please note, this value may sometimes have to be the item id, not the name.
