one of the options is to set an automatic default assignee for the project -> that means when an issue is created in that project it automatically assigns to that user.
You can set it up when you:
- Go to the project -> Open project settings
- then in Project settings/Details, there is this config:
- and you can select to automatically assign to project lead
Another option can be to use Components, then you can assign created issues automatically to component lead. More info here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/organizing-work-with-components-764478279.html

There is another option to assign every issue to a specific user from Workflows:
1. Go to Jira settings -> Issues -> Workflows
- there you need to find a workflow for "Create issue" (can be active or inactive)
- click on edit
2. Create a new transition that goes from open to open status and then click on Post functions option in the menu.
3. Then you edit "The Assignee of the issue will be set to..." transition:
4. And you'll get this setup form where you can set to which user you want to assign
Then save and make sure you make this workflow public to apply.
Let me know if this works it seemed to be quite complicated 🤯
I tried a post-function already, not that one, but one which says "assigne the current user" which is what I need.
However, it doesn't work :( It works when i set a post-function in that same transaction to insert a description, but the one that I want, is not working
Anyway, I learned a lot and discovered other tools, thank you!!
I have the very same problem when using post function as that "The Assignee of the issue will be set to ........" doesn't work and actually ends up breaking the whole set of post-functions.
Is this a known bug or what? I can see many others have the same issue.
We know that great teams require amazing project management chops. It's no surprise that great teams who use Jira have strong project managers, effective workflows, and secrets that bring planning ...
