Automation rules format

For using issue picker field or populating the field in Automation rules the following format is used:

{ "fields":{ "customfield_id":{ "issues":[ { "label":"issueKey", "value":"issueKey" } ] } } }

Customfield_id - ID of the custom field that is being used in the rule

label - Insert the issuekey of an issue that should populate the AIL field
value - Insert the issuekey of an issue that should populate the AIL field

Repeat the process for adding multiple issues in the field

{ "fields":{ "customfield_id":{ "issues":[ { "label":"issueKey", "value":"issueKey" }, { "label":"issueKey", "value":"issueKey" } ] } } }
