I don't know how create auto assignment to previous assignee using custom field and post function when I change issue status (or dragging it to other status column on the board). Here, at this community a read other comments, but there is still no clear understanding except "create custom field" and use post function.

But for copying the user from the custom field to the assignee field, there is no function in Jira.

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 ...
