How to change an assignee in an existing issue?

Programatically or through JIRA UI

Programatically : Use Mutable issue issue.setAssignee(com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User assignee)

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/latest/com/atlassian/jira/issue/MutableIssue.html

JIRA UI : Check you have assign issue and assinable user permission then assign issue to users at issue view screen :) .

Hi Wendy,

You can do that through the issue detailed screen, click on the Edit button and then you can change the assignee from there.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut to change the assignee by clicking on the button a in your keyboard when you are viewing an issue.

Cheers,
