I would like to have the assignee field mandatory (i.e. issue not unassigned) in all status of the issue, but just not in the backlog. In backlog, we still don't know who will work on it, so we allow an issue to be unassigned.
I could (and I did) set a validator in the transitions to ensure there's an assignee during transition leaving the backlog, but nothing prevents to unassign afterward.
Thanks for your hints.
Thanks for the idea.
But when the issues are in the backlog (potentially unassigned), the manager set an assignee, and the manager change the status to "selected for development" (or whatever status comes after the backlog).
Wouldn't this prevent the manager to change the status after he assigned the issue to a team member? (because the manager is not the assignee)
Also after the transition, does it prevent to change to "unassigned" without changing the status (i.e. without transition)?
ok you want both assignee and manager should be able to execute the transition
then follow the steps
1-edit workflow of concerned project and issue types
2-click on transition and then validator
3-select the permission validator and select the permission from drop down list
4-set the permission for the same with current assignee and reporter(manager) then only assignee and reporter(manager) can execute the transition
There is an administrative setting for making Assignee as mandatory at:
Administration > System > General Configuration
Search for "Allow Unassigned Issues" and turn it OFF. This would enforce and ensure that every issue created has an 'Assignee'.
But that would mean, an assigned issue in Backlog. May be, you need to introduce a status 'Not ready' between 'Backlog' and 'Selected for Development' OR when the manager moves the ticket to 'Selected for Development', have a transition screen that shows and allows for changing 'Assignee' field.
