Update JIRA project lead as default assignee doesn't work when cloning an issue.

Deleted user Nov 04, 2019

Is this a bug or is there another way to add assignee during cloning?

When creating new issue in project directly project lead is set to default assignee.

Hi @[deleted] ,

For Create Transition in workflow , you can add post function called Assign to Lead Developer which assigns the issue to default assignee that is project lead and it is working for cloning and creating issues as well.

Please refer below screenshots for your reference.

I guess it is not possible to create a workflow transition in this case, since it is a new cloned issue and not the same issue moved between statuses.

Hi @[deleted] ,

You need to add above post function to your existing create transition for the workflow.

Please refer screenshot for the transition what i'm referring here.cot01.png

But, is Lead developer the same as project lead?

Yes @[deleted] , If you do not have components leads then Project lead refered as lead developer.

thank you @Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_ the components was the issue for me!
