default assignee

Is it possible to change default assignee conditional based on field called "test type"? if yes please explain and write down the steps. thank you!


Hi @Haroon Habibi 

With JIRA vanilla no, but if you want to default assignee to be set on the create screen you can do it with a Behaviour from Scriptrunner app. If you want to set the assignee during the creation but not displayed on the create screen you can create an automation for JIRA for that.


If you add Automation, which is free, to your instance if you have not already done so then you can create a rule that sets the assignee based on the field.

@Mikael, we are not using the cloud version, we are using the data center version and we are not allowed to install any third party applications. thank you!

@Haroon Habibi Automation is no longer a third-party app, it is now developed and supported by Atlassian.
