For one of our projects, we have the following behavior in place:
1. a sub-task is assigned to person A and it's not-started
2. the scrum master, person B, check status, and notices some sub-tasks were not updated and performs the changes by himself. When he moves the sub-tasks from not-started to in progress, the task gets assigned to the person who performs the change instead of leaving it to the person who was initially assigned to it (person A).
Is this the expected behavior? Can we change it so the assignee value remains the same irrespective of who moves it across the status?
Yes, you can change this. Your workflow must have been designed with this in mind, as it is an option that can be chosen.
In your workflow, likely on the Start Progress Transition, someone has applied the following post-function:
Removing this will not assign the issue when someone triggers the Start Progress transition.
