Autmatic Default Assignee JIRA

Hello all,

I wonder if it was possible to set a person assigned by default if the Assignee field is not filled?

1 answer

Yes, it is. You need to edit the Project's Workflow and add a Post Function to the Create transition. Choose Update Issue Field, on the next screen the Assignee field is automatically selected and you can choose the User.

Perfect, thank you !

In fact it's not correct, i want to assign to the default assignee only if the field "assignee" is empty

My bad, misread your post. Are you using JIRA Cloud or do you have a Server instance?

I've a server instance, i've solved the problem. I go through the Lead component, which will be treated as being assigned

Yes, Component Leads are a possibility.

Why I asked about the instance is because on JIRA Server you can install an add-on called ScriptRunner which will allow you to create a Script Function-type Post Function which can do basically anything you want, e.g only set a default Assignee if the field is empty.
