Assigning QA Verify JIRa automatically to person instead of leaving it unassigned

is there a way to automatically assign JIRA when moved to QAVerify to a particular person?


Right now our dev resolve the JIRA with a resolution which moves the JIRA to QA Verify status through our workflow.But the JIRA remains un assigned.

How can i make these JIRAs to get assigned to a particular assignee say a QA lead or a group so that person becomes the owner of that JIRA.


Any help would be appreciated

Hi @chandru

You could set up a screen with the assignee available to edit after the transition, or you can use a post function to auto assign it to a specific person with the Update Issue Field(Image 1)Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 6.05.48 PM.pngIf you need help on locating this please let me know. I can post more screen shots! Have a good day!

Thanks Brittany for your answer. Could you please post the screenshots/steps for locating it? that would be helpful.

P.S: I have only the Project Admin access and not the JIRA admin access.So i may have to contact your JIRA admin based on your reply

Hey @chandru

You'll need to contact your Jira admin to update the workflow for you. 

I believe you'll have to contact your Jira admin about the screen creation as well.

I would write out some requirements like this...

Add a post function of 'Update Issue Field' to the Issue Field = Assignee. Field Value = QA Lead (Name) after the transition to QA Verify. 

Hope this helps!

Thanks Bittany.I will contact the JIRA admin with the above info.
