How to automatically assign issue to reporter?

I want to automatically assign tickets in JIRA when they are resolved to the reporter, only if the reporter is a member of the QA team.

For example, if QA member opened an issue, when the issue is resolved it should be assigned back to the reporter. If a developer opened an issue, the issue should be automatically assigned (when resolved) to QA team leader.

What is the best practice and how to configure it in JIRA cloud?

You should write the script to assign issue to user as post function.


    import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;

    import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

    import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

    import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager


    import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User


    if (GroupManager.isUserInGroup((issue.getReporter(), "QA team")) {



Thanks, but it's JIRA cloud, I can't write scripts...

Since you have very limited choice on post-function scripts, I guess you are stucked.
