Component set after creation


I've been sarching around here, but didn't get a conclusion yet. Is it possible that, if someone Edit an issue and set a different Component, it automatically updates the Assignee?

Thanks in advance,

def field = event.getChangeLog().getRelated('ChildChangeItem').any{ it.field.toString().equalsIgnoreCase("Component")}

if (field){

Collection components = issue.getComponents().name;

if(components.contains("New Employee")){

//set assignee

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

def supervisorWatcher = userManager.getUserObject("assignee")


Thanks a lot, will check it out also..

No. that is for creation and it only sets it if you leave the assignee select to automatic.

That's what I thought, thanks a lot.

Additional Information:
It is possible with some plugins, for example Behaviours plugin.It is for advanced users, but it is free.

Link to similar questions with answers (with assumption that you will use Behaviours plugin):

1. To set assignee:

2. To get component lead according to chosen component:


Good call, I was planing to use this plugin on our second phase implementation, for other requests that i got. Thanks a lot also.
