Specify assignee during smart commit

During workflow transitions, I want to mention assignee as well.


For example, I'm done with necessary code implementation, and now want to transition my task from "In Progress" to "Code Review". This can be done by:

JIRA-XX #time XXm #comment AA BBB CCCC #code-review



But then, I still have to visit JIRA dashboard only to update assignee to someone else who are suppose to review my code.


Is it possible to do so in above command itself?

 JIRA-XX #time XXm #comment AA BBB CCCC #code-review [~ana]


~ana : JIRA's representation for user/member (Ana)


Thank you.

You can't do that, but you can put it in the comment and have them get notified. In theory you could have a post function on the transition which parses the comment and changes assignee, but that would be pretty hacky.

With the Genius Commits feature of the Better DevOps Automation app you can perfectly do that!

Even better, it allows you to create your own commands!

You could introduce something like:

FOO-123 @code-review Fixed the NullPointerException! ~john.doe

... where the "code-review" command will move FOO-123 to a new status, add the "Fixed the NullPointerException" text as comment and assign the issue to the user "john.doe". You can freely customize your preferred syntax for the command and its parameters and also customize the logic behind the command!


Note that it is a Jira app but it integrates with the Bitbucket instance linked to Jira.]

(Disclaimer: I'm a developer in the team that supports this app.)



Interesting. You could use a Jira transition rule that assigns back to a reporter (or some other default logic) when moved to the code review status. You can try workflow triggers

Hey together,

you can use the add-on Smart Commits for Bitbucket .

The add-on provides 12 further smart commit actions.

For example: TEST-1 #assignee mueller
