Send email when was assigned by automated rule

Hello, could you support me with this use case? In my Jira instance, in the notification scheme, we have configured in Email Notification Preferenses send an email when "the issue is assigned to you" and this works ok, but when including a post function in workflow that automatically assigns the card, the person who has been assigned does not receive the mail. Can someone give me clarity why does this happen?

Hi @Daniela Buffarini 

I think your problem with the order , Can you please check the order of your post-function and be sure that it is before firing  issue event

Hi @Mohamed Adel OrderInPostFunction.PNG Thanks for your help, I add a screenshot to see the order; I understand that the execution rule that I automate happens first. In what order should it be executed so that it then executes the action of notifying the assigned users?

@Daniela Buffarini 

Now the problem is that you are trying to assign your issue but the fired issue event is Generic Event and this is not the one you configured your notification scheme for as you configured "Issue Assigned" Event , try to add your assignee script after firing the Generic Event and let's see how this work 

Thanks again @Mohamed Adel . I followed your advice and changed the configuration in this way, but still the notification scheme did not send the mailOrderInPostFunction2.PNG

@Daniela Buffarini  good, now let's check your code how you are setting the assignee can you share your custom script 

Yes.  This the code and assign the user correctly



import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.userManager
def someUser = userManager.getUserByKey("xxxxxxx")
issue.assignee = someUser

ok , update your script to be like the one in this thread


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

def user = userManager.getUserByName("tbas")

def validateAssignResult = issueService.validateAssign(user,, issue.reporterId)
issueService.assign(user, validateAssignResult)

also, move your assignee script order to be before the Generic event ,the ordering is not the issue now

Now with this code I try again, but it does not make the change to assign the new user. Assigne remains unchanged. If it was Unassigned, it remains unchanged. Test in both circumstances, with the rule before General Events and with the rule after General Events with the same result. It does not update in assigne. I can not understand how to achieve the assignment and the sending of mail. Coud you keep helping me @Mohamed Adel 

@Daniela Buffarini  is there any error in the script history log?


This is how notifications are configured for the project, just in case

What is the configuration on issue assigned event ?


It is exactly the same as generic event
