Update issue in Agile board without changing owner

I am on the latest version of Jira + Jira Agile (no longer called Greenhopper). As a PM, I'm using the Agile board view to help manage the workflow with multiple location resources. I move issues from To Do to In Progress to Done, but it changes the owner to me when I do this.

How can I utilize the agile board without changing ownership of the issues when I move the tickets?

It is a part of your workflow configuration. You might have a workflow post function which sets the assignee to current user. You can just remove it and the boards will reflect the changes in workflow.

Thank you. I read about that, but can't seem to find this configuration and option to remove setting the assignee to the current user. Where can I find this option?

Woohoo! Thank you very much!
