Cannot get Post function to work

Hi,

I am trying to add on a post function condition to our workflow and it does not seem to work. The issue goes through to the Code review status where the issue is assigned to the lead deployment role. (this works) what we need is when the lead developer passes the code, the issue should be reassigned back to the last developer.

So I added the following post function:

"Assign the issue to the last user from the Developers role who had this issue assigned before (unless user selects an Assignee in the transition screen) ."

I have made sure the developers in question are added within the developers role for the specific project. However, when the lead developer clicks Pass review it reassigns it back to Project Lead

Please let me know if i have missed something.

Thank you advance for your help

Kind Regards

Ree

Hi Ree, can you check if the project leader has the Developer role too?

Hey,

The project lead doesnt have the developer role :(

So that's the problem. The issue can't be assigned to the last developer because there's no developer role.

so i thought as long as the users are added within the jira project, under the roles tab, within the Developers field, the issue should reassign back to them. Or does it have to do with a anothe group? sorry i am new to jira..

Don't worry. That's why AA exist :D

When you use this PostFunction:

"Assign the issue to the last user from the Developers role who had this issue assigned before (unless user selects an Assignee in the transition screen) ."

The word Developers is the role your specifying. If I remember correctly you can change that role, so you can have for example:

"Assign the issue to the last user from the Administrators role who had this issue assigned before (unless user selects an Assignee in the transition screen) ."

:))

But if i change it to administrators.. does that mean i need to add the developers within the administrator field?

Exactly, you need to choose the role where is the user you want to be assigned.

Ok so this is where i have added our developers names onto. is that right? for the post function to work.

Yes, now it should work fine, remember that the developer must be assigned before. Hope it works!

Hi, It works, however it assigns the issue to another developer who is not within the developer project role for the specific project.. I am not sure what i am doing wrong. sorry..
