Custom Workflow question

Is there any way to make a post function which allows you to select an assignee? I know you can default to an assignee, but we are trying to have the option to select one, since there are different options depending on the work distribution.

If you want the user to select the assignee for that transition, you can create a screen that is just includes Assignee on it. Then, use that screen for the transition. If you need to make it required, you can also add a validation for that transition, requiring the Assignee field

I'm not sure if i got you right. Do you want to set the assignee depending on some criteria in a post function?

The Groovy Script Runner plugin could help you here.

Here is an example how to set the assignee programmatically to the current user but of course you can set other user names. As Jamie's points out in his example it would be good to check the Assignable right else you can easily create data that does not conform to the permission scheme
