How to assign a ticket to a user based on the priority of the ticket in JIRA?

I have a requirement on a project that a ticket which is a Blocker should be assigned to ABC user, ticket which is a Major should be assigned to DEF user, so on.

Has anyone implemented a worfklow in JIRA which does something like this? I know you can design a workflow which can assign a ticket to the user based on the type of the ticket but based on the priority can you assign a ticket to a user? Please help.

Hi, You can do that with script runner plugin. Write a post function something like in answer below. https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/140304/groovy-post-script-to-assign-a-user-based-on-a-customfield Hope it helps Vijay

I was expecting to see an easy answer, hmm, do we have an easy answer? :D

Update on Transition for JIRA allows you to condition the running of a post function so you can construct an Update issues post function for each priority you want to handle. You can do this on initial create (How to update issues after initial issue create) or at some other point in your workflow.

This is a good option, I will look into this.
