Run an external script (or use webhooks to get the script triggered) when an issue is created, check some static data which has the roster for the employees, and use REST apis to assign the issue with the least loaded individual.

Hey there, tshepo.

Sounds like you need the assistance from the following channels to cater for this requirement. Most likely you will have to develop a plugin to achieve this.

Since this feature is not available for the current JIRA, I am not sure whether other users managed to get this to work. However, I hope that the links provided will be able to at least help you a bit.

Warm regards,

Based on your ondemand tag, you're probably not even gonna be able to install your own custom plugins anytime soon.
