Hey @Wajahat Gul ,

If you issue will go from Unassigned to Assigned only once, perhaps you could try creating a custom listener that listens to the Issue Assigned event with the below script:-

def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "assignee"}

if(change) {
if (change.oldstring == null && change.newstring != null) {
//Set Date here

The script will check if the Assignee was changed from Unassigned to a specific user and then setting the date.

Of course, if ever your issue goes back to Unassigned and then assigned again, the date will change again.

Hope this helps.
