Assign sub-task to component owner in Jira automation


I have a challenge that I hope some of the experts here knows how to solve. 

Previously we have used many different addons in workflow automation, but are using Jira automation more and more. My challenge right now is that I created auto creation of a specific sub-task in a workflow transition and that works fine. BUT I would like to assign this task to the person set to be leader of the component in the same project. 

(To be specific: The main ticket is assigned to Business Owner and the auto created sub-task is for assessment and should be assigned to the component lead, ex. parent ticket with jira component --> the subtask should be assigned to me)

Are you sing Automation for Jira? Assuming so. unless something has changed, there isn’t a smartvalue for the component lead. So I don’t think your goal is achievable using A4J. If you have Scriptrunner you should be able to do so.

Ok, thanks Jack. We do have scriptrunner so I`ll check that lead out. :)
