I'm using Atlassian Cloud.
When creating a project, I'd like to assign a QA lead in addition to a Project Lead (see screenshot below)

I would like to be able to add a QA lead, that I can use to automatically set as the current assignee when certain transitions occur. Basically set a designee who will be assigned tasks when specific transactions occur.
Am I able to do this with Atlassian Cloud?
I'm afraid it's a single field with one user, and there are no project fields.
The closest I can get to your use case is to create a new role, stick your QA lead in it separately for each project and then use that role to control the permissions (and I think you can do some stuff with automatically assigning to the first person named in a role, which works great if there's only one person in it)
Nic, thanks! However, how do I do this? I went into the actual transition's post hooks and I only see the ability to assign the ticket to the current user, the reporter or the lead developer (see screenshot) https://www.dropbox.com/s/0wlld613ot9p5o9/Screenshot%202015-06-26%2012.41.50.png?dl=0
Yeah, my intimate knowledge of Cloud is a little lacking. I've worked mostly with Server versions of JIRA and when I get my paws on them, I tend to install a batch of free addons that do things everyone needs. On Cloud, the functions I enable with plugins are done with the "JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions" addon (it's not free for server versions, which is why I tend to use others). Go to your addons section, find it and enable it. From memory, you'll then have the option to add a workflow post-function called "assign to role", which will ask you for which role...
