Automatic assign an issue when changing status

I'm using Jira Agile OnDemand and I have a sprint board with for columns. I would like all the issue transitioned from "In Progress" to "QA" to be automatically assigned to a specific user. Is that possible?

Thanks

Yes, you can add the "Update Issue Field" post function in the appropriate workflow transition and change the assignee value to that specific user.

hello, can I set this to assign to the reporter of the fault? WHen an issue is passed into feedback I want it to go back to the reporter to verfiy the fix or provide more info

Exactly. You can define the assignee field to be assigned to the reporter on workflow transition.

if i add this post function how would system know whom to assign the issue?

How to DO it ? Where can read abut "Update Issue Field" post function ?

@aamer.inam you can select the person whom you want to assign for him. 

Looking at the post function, the "add post function" is greyed out and I am logged in as Admin.

Never mind, user error... I thought I was in "Edit" but then I was not! :-()
