For example :

hi eren,

you could enable "Allow unassigned Issues"

then remove "Project Lead" from assignee inside projects administration.

if you want to assign to an specific user by default just add a postfunction to the "Create Issue" transition in your workflow and add something like "Update Issue Field" where you can choose "Assignee" field and put your user "yyyy" there.

note that every new created issue will be assigned to yyyy then.

is that what your askin for?

1) Change Assignee by modifying workflow in post function.


2) Use components instead ( )
