How do I assign test tasks to a QA engineer when a story moves to QA?

Yep. Since tests are JIRA issues, they follow a workflow. In the transition to the QA status, add a post function to assign the task to the user in question.

Note that this will always assign the issue to the same user. If it's not 100% of the tasks that goes to the same QA engineer, you need another approach.

This is what I'd do:

  1. Make an your workflow fire a custom event to warn the QA-engineers group that an issue has been set in QA
  2. Have the QA engineers pick up and assign tasks for themselves. Having a filter subscription or, better yet, a Kanban board to manage these "test requests" works very well in my experience.
