Assignee depending on issue type and project

Hi, we have a workflow linked to a particular issue-type with a fixed assignee. It can be used by several projects in JIRA and that assignee is set in a Post Function using "The Assignee of the issue will be set to 35sj".
So the assignee is fixed and cannot be choosen in the create-issue-screen.
Now there's the need to add a assignee depending on the project choosen in the create-issue-screen - still the same issue-type and workflow.
What's the easiest wat to accomplish this?
Thanks for any input.

I think the easiest way is to duplicate your workflow, and change the assignee there per project.

Other solutions would require some level of scripting, or developing your own plugin.

You could write a script that does exactly what you need with ScriptRunner, or probably you could use JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions to add this assignment-postcondition, and add a scripted condition to this post function.
