Update custom field based on in-line editing the "Assignee" - How?(without F5) Edited

Hi Atlassian Community.


I have a use case, where I need to update a custom field(Insight) based on the "Assignee" field.


But I am not sure IF this is possible and HOW to achieve this.



An Assignee belongs to a single "Group" - This needs to be synces at all times in Jira

This "Group" attribute is stored on a User object in Insight, which is referenced/linked to the Jira user - and thereby the Assignee.


Use case:

When Assignee is changed from User A -> User B on issues in-line editing, the Group custom field on the issue needs to be updated with new value.



So basically:


Assignee Changes(Between 2 users) 


Update "Group" custom field(Lookup Assignee in Insight Object attribute = Jira User -> Get Group-attribute value.



I need this date-update in the field to happen instant WITHOUT refreshing the browser(F5).


I highly assume there is only one way of doing this = Groovy scripting :D


Is this in-line editing refresh possible? If so, how/where should this be achived through groovy? And what mechanism/event is/can trigger this field refresh?


If this is NOT technically possible - What alternatives do I have?

Currently I only know of disabling in-line editing on the Assignee field and force all users to use the native "assign"-button to generate the data refresh - But that would break a major native funtionality in Jira - And I would hate to do this.



We have actually achived syncing Reporter to a custom field(Insight) at all times - But that is a 100% strict 1:1 filter assign insight rule defined on the custom field itself - I cannot do this with the Assignee<->Group field, hence I only need partial sync based in certain scenarios


I would highly appreaciate any input, recommendations and solutions to this - This requirement is currently a hard requirement for the project implementation/migration


Thanks in advance
