How can you adjust settings so that every response to the customer comes from the assignee's account

That way non-assignee's answers are made under the name of the assignee's account

Hi Henry,

Thank you for your response.

I can confirm that you could achieve this requirement using ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud and by writing a script Listener script which is configured to run on the comment created event.

The script would then need to check if the comment author matches the assignee of the ticket and if it did not to call the Update Comment API which Atlassian provides to set the author of the comment to the assignee of the issue.

I hope this information helps.



Hi @Henry Maclaren,

You will need Scriptrunner for this. Unfortunately, Automation for Jira does not allow adding comments as a different user.
