Auto-fill 'Group picker' custom field based on issue type selected

So, what I have is 4 different issue types - rather than assign an issue type automatically to one person I want to assign to a group. Is there anyway to do this to auto-fill the group picker?

From what I can see, my only other (easy) alternative is to set-up the groups I have in JIRA to an email distribution list and set up JIRA accounts to each distribution list and auto-assign the issue type to a 'single' assignee rather than use the group picker custom field. Trying to avoid using up 4 user licenses though!

I think you can use the Behaviour plugin for this.

This would be a starting point:

Use an if/switch so that you can set the correct group based on the issuetype.
