We have developers that create issues all the time. Most often, these issues are for themselves, so we'd like to have issues automatically assigned to the reporter. Sometimes developers assign issues to other users.
If I use the "Assign to Reporter" post function, the issue is assigned to the reporter even if he or she changes the assignee to someone else.
Is there a way to only assign to the reporter if the assign field is "Unassigned"?
Out of the box, the answer appears to be no:
But....using a little script or a plugin can achieve the same trick:
This can be achieved via post functions on the Create Transition in the Project Workflow. You can make "Assign to Reporter" the first post function. This will make Assignee = Reporter if the user did not change the value in the create screen (left it set to "Automatic").
Kimberly's solution did not work for me:
I have it first yet whenever i try to create an issue, it always goes to the default assignee, not to the assignee that I select when creating the issue.
