Limit Assign Issues permission for one out of many teams



We have a Classic project with multiple teams having access to it.

What we would like to do is:

Restrict the Assign Issues permission for 1 particular team in such a way that they are able to assign only to a pre-defined group.

If project has Teams A, B, C
-A & B can create and assign issues to any of A, B, C
-C can only create and assign issues to A.
-C should not see the list of Team B members in Assignee field.

Can anyone please help with this.

Thanks in advance

There is no way to do this off-the-shelf.  The "assign" permission simply grants the right to assign an issue, and the "assignable user" permission determines who appears in the list of assignable users.

There's no code for generating the list of possible assignees based on who the user doing the assigning is.

I don't think there's any app that could do this either (you could do something with Scriptrunner Behaviours and a couple of other apps on Server, but they don't work on Cloud yet)

You might want to look at doing it differently - instead of changing the way the list of assignees works, automate it.  If, for example, C moves an issue from "to do" to "in progress", then set the assignee to A for them.
