Hey Ramaiah,

To do this, you'll have to place a post-function on every one of the transitions that you specified above. In each custom post-function, you can get the current user and assign them to the "Addressed By" field using a script like:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def cfm = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def jiraAuthContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext()

def userCf = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Addressed By")
def currentUser = jiraAuthContext.getLoggedInUser()

issue.setCustomFieldValue(userCf, currentUser)

Additionally, you need to make note of where the post function is in the order of execution. Make sure you put this function just before the "Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database" step:

Let me know if you need help with this or have any more questions! :)
