This can be done with Automation for JIRA. Simply use the "Assign Issue" action and select "Assign to a member of a list or group". You will be then offered choice of "Load Balanced", "Round-robin" and "Random".

Round-robin assigning iterates over a list of users and assigns issues to them in turn. I have written this up in more details at:


There is a plugin called "Round Robin Assignment for JIRA & JSD" having different round robin strategies. This plugin is able to configure per issue type round robin strategy

I loaded this plugin but when I attempt to add the agents to assign to its not finding any results even though I'm using the Jira account name.  Should it find these agents?

It have 3 strategies namely
1. simple round robin

2. number/count round robin

3. estimate round robin


Any one of the above 3 round robin would be applied further depending on group configured, or select list option to group mapping configured.

So ultimately its a group on which roundrobin will get applied.

So, if you want simple round robin to be applied among "Developer" group users, simple add users to the developer group, and apply round robin for "Developer" group. 


This plugin does not provided any way to apply round robin for individual user or agent, it gets applied through group.

Here is the documentation for plugin 

Hope I was able to explain. Please let me know.
