I want to be able to move a agile ticket from Open to In Progress without changing the assignee. When I go to the workflow step, Start Progress, and look at the post functions, there does not appear to be any of the post functions that are assigning the logged in user as the assignee:
How can I keep the assigned user from changing?
As Admin go in your Admin drop down menu to Issues.
Go to Workflows
Duplicate the default JIRA workflow
Click the (Start Progress) arrow going from OPEN to IN PROGRESS
Click on Post Functions
Remove "3. Assign the issue to the current user. Please note that the issue will only be assigned to the current user if the current user has the 'Assignable User' permission."
Add this to your Workflow to your projects
Has this actually been solved? I have Scrum Masters that often end up updating tasks for team members and when they move the tasks they get reassigned to the SM so the SM has to reassign the task back to the correct assignee every time. Is there a way to prevent this auto assign from occurring when moving through the workflow?
This started happening with a new project and it drove me crazy looking everywhere in transitions, custom scripts, etc. Turned out to be:
Settings > Projects > click on project name e.g. ABC > displays Project Settings > Users and roles > Edit defaults > popup: Edit Project lead and Default Assignee for Project: ABC
Project Lead: YourLeadsJiraID
Default Assignee: dropdown defaulted to Project Lead > change to Unassigned > Update
Jira server 8.5.0
IMHO, it should default to unassigned to begin with to avoid just this problem.
Even I have the same problem. I checked the Agile workflow post function and did not find any condition that will assign the issue to the user who drags the issue from to-do to In Progress state using Agile Board.
Even the Auto Assign option is unchecked in the JIRA Agile configuration. Anyone facing the same problem?
there is no post function for assignees, and i also use this flow on 2 boards, weirdly the auto assigned only work in 1 board, is there any other way to turn off the auto assigned?
