Change Custom Field value on assign


I just wanted to see if its possible to change a custom field value everytime its assigned to someone.

for eg: i have a field which has the values "aa,"bb","cc". everytime the ticket is assigned to someone the custom field should reset to "aa".

Any ideas on this. im on ondemand version.

As it turns out due to JIRA OnDemand restrictions you may not be able to achieve such configuration.



We can do using java script. You need to add a plugin, in that add javascript code, reset the field when the assignee changes, if you want this only for a project, add conditions in the java script code.Else it will affect all the projects.

Hope it helps.

You can use FieldChangedValidator

It's a custom validator that comes with free plugin: JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions avaiable from atlassian marketplace
