Assigning newly created Issue's to groups through Transition Post-Functions

Hi All,

I am creating several linked issue's through post-functions from one transition and would like to assign each of them to different groups.

I cannot identify what syntax to use particularly when assigning to a specific user or group- see destination in picture below

Eg. Issue is moved to Review state and the post function fires requests out to multiple stakeholder groups for review and they can all be tracked in seperate workflow.


Thank you very much for your support.

You can't assign issues to groups, only individuals.

Thanks for the clarification - same question for individuals - what syntax is needed? say for a username Superman?

Last time I used JMWE, it was simply the user's login id.

Thanks for the clarification that works
