Subtask Default Fields with ScriptRunner don't work for Assignee


It works for summary, description and compontens, but it don't inherit the assignee.

This is the script I used as Server-Side-Script for an added visible field (summary):

Still, when I click on "Create a subtask" Assignee-Field stays empty. 


When I add this line

2018-04-17 17_13-Behaviours - SQL Projekt AG JIRA Testsystem.png

the assignee appears in the description-field. So it is possible to get the value. Why it then won't work with the assignee-field?


We use Jira Server 7.7.0 and ScriptRunner 5.3.13 (latest Version).

We update Jira tomorrow to 7.9.0

It looks like you are setting by user ID. If I remember correctly, I think you might need to set by username.



Hey Joshua,

can you give me the full line as example pls? :)


The server-side script I showed above is an example from Adaptavist website:


The example there is:



I tried to give out the value in the description field. For that I changed the line to this:



Expected output: Assignee ID in the DESCRIPTION-field --> right

Why it doesn't work with the ASSIGNEE-field?
