Automatic assign an issue when changing status

Claudio De Pace Jan 14, 2014

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?

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

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