So I created post function and the problem is that I want the new assignee will be copy from CF type user picker in the triggered issue.

It sounds like on Bob Swift's own Jira may be helpful. 

If you can't get at the URL, here's the basics:

"You want to use the value of the custom field from the original issue or the parent issue. So, for example: %original_Approval%. That can be a multi picker field or select list. You don't want %values_...% which returns the configured field options."

So you'd set the Assignee dropdown to Specific User (I think, you might have to try the different options), and then the text field next to it would have the substitution variable %original_MyFieldName% (or possibly %parent_MyFieldName%, depending on if the value has changed since the parent was created.)


The solution was %parent_customfield_10500%
