Current Default Project Assignee - X
Issue assignee - Y
Create an issue and assign it to Y.
Change the issue status from open to in progress
The issue assignee changes from Y to X.
How do I make the issue not change the assignee on a status change.
Also if I wish to configure it that way, how do I control it?
Just as Dave Theodore says, it's probably workflow scheme's fault.
Unless you are using JIRA 6.1, where starting progress on issue, reassigns it to you. In your example, if you are logged in as user X, issue will get assigned to you (user X). If you are logged in as user Z, issue will get assigned to you (user Z).
That seems strange, as I have not many changes in that section.
Eitherways, I looked at what you spoke about -
and see this post action - "Assign the issue to the current user. Please note that the issue will only be assigned to the current user if the current user has the 'Assignable User' permission."
Which lead me to check who is my Assignable User and I went here -https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/139257/assignable-users-how-do-i-set-that-permission-so-that-users-can-share-my-bonfire-test-sessions
I performed steps listed there as well (by adding all users to the assignable user list), but no dice.
aahh okay.. So I think i know what is happening and correct me if i am wrong.
I have logged in as X (the administrator), and im updating an issue assigned to Y. Jira considers the logged in user as the current user and not the one actually assigned to it. So it changes to X, each time X changes the status
