How to automatically assign ticket to user based on the Location of the ticket in JIRA?

Our IT dept need to assign service desk tickets to user based on ticket Location. Is there any way to do that? Someone suggest to use ScriptRunner, but I cannot find any solution. 

Appreciated if you could let me know!

Have a look at the answer in which shows how to set an assignee from ScripteRunner. You will need to change the line

if (user != null)

to match your requirement for a location based entry.


Hope this helps point you in the right direction.
