How to assign an issue to the user of a specific role in transition?

I have a workflow which has 2 review statuses as follows:

FireShot Capture 139 - Edit — Accton Review Workflow For The Confirm Issue Type - JIRA - localhost.png


If the initial assignee clicks the "TL Review" button, the issue should be transitioned to the Team Leader. And if the Team Leader click the "PL Review" button, the issue should be transitioned to the Project Leader/Reporter.

However, the team leader is variable by project, thus I add a role named as "Team Leader" and add the only one team leader in it while creating the project.

But I don't know how to make the issue automatically be assigned to the Team Leader after the initial assignee click the "TL Review" button.

Is there any free solution to achieve the workflow?

Hi @YJ Huang 


You best bet is working with components. Jira doesn't provide any (that I'm aware) to assign to a role. 

You can set components identifying the teams, with the team leader as a component leader. When the transition is made, assign the issue to the component leader in  a post function. 

Hi @Pedro Felgueiras , thanks for your suggestion.

Eventually, this requirement is implemented the function via the Automation for Jira - Server Lite plugin.
