Can Jira update a custom field everytime an issue is updated?

Specifically - we would like to update a custom field everytime the jira issue assignment changes. Can this be accomplished via configuration vs code?

Hey there, Rob.

JIRA is not able to update custom fields via post functions by default as explained in the following documentation:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow#ConfiguringWorkflow-postfunctions

However, there is a plugin that might be able to cater for your requirement.

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.googlecode.jira-suite-utilities

Hope this helps!

Warm regards,

Danial
