How to assign a user automatically when moving task from one state to other?

I know this can be done through post function in the workflow. But here my query is little different.

I have 20 projects, all have similar one workflow scheme. 

I want to assign QA Lead whenever I move the task from development stage to testing. But QA leads are different for many projects. 

In post function I can define only one QA lead name.

Is it possible to assign different QA lead for different project?

I would do it in this way -

 There is generally a Role in every project called "QA" , I will add the respective "QA lead" as the first member of the "QA" role in the project configuration and then I would use the script runner post-function

  • Assign to first member of role
    Assign to the first member of the specified role

In this way for every project the workflow transition would assign the issues to the QA lead.

Hi Tarun,

Thanks for replying. I had configured script runner post function in the workflow. But still, I am not getting QA name in the assignee. Do I need to do any other configuration?

Have you chosen this particular postfunction from script runner

"Assign to first member of role"

and have you added your QA lead in the "role" which you have mentioned in "Assign to first member of role"?

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
