How do I assign to a user automatically via transition based on a custom user picker field?

We have multiple team member that work with a issue  (Business Analyst, Tech, QA) and the workflows transition between based on the development and testing phase we are in.

Is it possible to automatically assign to user that is selected in a custom field when a workflow is transitioned? For example, I want to created a custom user field to indicate which team member is working from the BSA side, Tech side and QA side. Then when the workflow transition from "SIT Passed" and is assigned to the QA and then transitions to "Ready for UAT" is automatically assigned to the user selected as "Developer".

You can do it using "Copy a parsed text to a field" post-function of JIRA Workflow Toolbox add-on using the following configuration:

  • Target field: Assignee
  • Parsing mode: basic
  • Text to be parsed...: %{nnnnn}

replacing nnnnn with field code of User Picker custom fields containing the user you want to assign the issue to. You will find a field code injector in the configuration page of the post-function. Look at the screenshot:

Anyway, maybe there is a free alternative to implement this simple use case.
