Auto assign component lead

Is it possible in the OnDemand environment to assign the component lead when the issue is created?

The only default assignee I could see was project lead or unassigned, and the Post Functions didn't have this assignment option.

Assigning to Component Lead option is done on the Components tab under project administration.

Thanks so much for the quick reply!

I know this topic is as old as Tyrannosaurus Rex, but its not working for me.

I created a project;
I created a component where I am the Lead and "Default Assignee" is "Component Lead"; 

When I set this Component to a ticket, it still stays unassigned (even after refresh).

What am I doing wrong ?

I have the same issue, what was the solution then? I don't see any reply.

Same here.  Only appears to work for the first component I defined and assigned a Lead.  Subsequent Components (C2 and C3 for example) with different team members as leads, won't auto assignee it when (in this case) a subtask is created with either C2 or C3 selected.

I solved my issue adding a post-function to the relevant transition in the workflow. The post-function is called "assign to component lead developer". In this way I was able to assign bugs to component leads defined in Components tab under project administration.

Hope this might help you, too.

In order to select a component for an issue the component has to be created previously. And when you create it you select who would be the component leader.

Is not possible to have a component leader per issue.
