I have a client that is moving from another system to Jira. In this system they are able to select from a small subset of assignees based on a cascading field, like group A, sub group B.
So Custom Field, maybe 2 level cascade, maybe more. The final node determines who should appear in assignee to choose from.
I appreciate the answer but that's not what I was looking for, unfortunately. The list of potential assignees for this project is massive. My client needs the functionality from their previous system that only shows a subset of users specific to the functional group the assignees belong to.
A workaround could be creating a new user picker type custom fied. You could control the data you show there with behaviors or directly in the field configuration with user filters.
then, in a postfunction of the creation transition you can copy the value from that field to assignee
