I am finalizing workflow setup for this project and this workflow involves some assignments to specific users at specific statuses. Post functions on transitions work quite nice for this, the only exception is the very first "Create" transition. Now, other post functions are executing without an issue, but assignment one is simply being ignored. I had used assignment post function on other transactions, including to the same user as I am trying to set for this initial one and it works.
I would like to do this without a third-party plugin if possible. Any advice?
Hey @Paul Zubkov - this is what I found and it worked for me - https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/can-t-get-assign-to-current-user-post-function-to-work-on-the-create-issue-transition-455542268.html
See if it does for you.
Sure, I could do it via a plugin, and if there is no other option I will. But in principle, post function to assign a user to the issue works as long as it is not the first transition, right? Because to me, it seems that this is the case as I can do the same post function on transitions inside the workflow without any issues, but the first one fails. Seems to me, its a bug, no?
Sounds like a bug to me, yes. Do you have it as the very last transaction in the list of post functions?
And, not sure that I would really refer to Automation For Jira as a plug in now since it has been incorporated into the product. But maybe you still have to do the install. :-)
Thank you for your suggestion, tried moving it around and it does not really change anything. I have several post functions on that transition. One is the creation of a specific label and the other assignment to a specific user. Basically label for PO that the issue is new and needs prioritization and assign it to him so he gets email and so on. The label part is working fine, with no complaint, but the assignment does not. No matter where I place the post function relative to others. What I find interesting is this - later on in the workflow, I am doing the same post function on assignment during another transition and it works. The only difference is the first transition vs transition in the middle of a workflow.
