Custom assignee on workflow transition

I have a multiple folks working on the same issue. I would like this to happen on our workflow: 

status 1 / assign to person 1 (custom field name picker)

transition to:

status 2 / assign to person 2 (custom field name picker)

Is there a workaround available?

You can use the "Copy Value from Other Field" post function in JIRA Suite Utilities plugin to copy the custom field value to assignee.

See for more details.

Thanks Jobin. Does this work on Jira Core cloud?


Yes. You might have to enable the add-on, if not already done. Check out this discussion as well:
