I would like to setup Jira such that when I assign an issue to a different user that the issue changes to the Assigned status automatically, rather than having to change the assignment and then hit a button to change the status. Can somebody please tell me how I can do this? Please be as specific as possible as I am still new to Jira. Thank you for your help.
You will need to find or write a "listener" that can catch "issue assigned" events and then tell the issue to move through the workflow.
There is an "auto transition listener" in the "Jira Toolkit" plugin which does exactly this if you don't want to write it yourself. If you don't want to use that, the next thing to look at is the "script runner" plugin, which will let you write a similar listener.
