Set assignee of a subtask as per the assignee of another subtask

Hi,

Our workflow creates 'Design' and 'Development' sub tasks. I set the development task assignee the same as the design task assignee in a post-function script for 'Design' task workflow.

def dsnAssignee = issue.getAssigneeId()
def subTasks = issue.getParentObject().getSubTaskObjects()


subTasks.each {

    if (it.issueType.name == "Development"){
        it.setAssigneeId(dsnAssignee)
     
        }
  }
This does not set the assignee of 'Development' task to the 'Design' task assignee. What else do I need to do in the above script?

Thanks

Updating issue consist of two steps:

  1. Settiong new values (what you have done)
  2. Storing changes into database. Use this to do it

    ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().getDirectoryUser(), issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)

    The reason to do it: you make a lot of changes and store it to database at once.

if that does not work, try it.store().  You probably also want to reindex the issue. 

ComponentAccessor.getIssueIndexManager().reIndex(it);

Thanks a lot Vasilliy and Jeff. My issue is resolved.
