If you really need to see the "Unassigned" word, Then there is a possible Javascript hack wink. You an add this in description of your assignee field.



AJS.$('#assignee-field').val("Unassigned") ;

Maybe you have assignee as a mandatory field in one of the screens or in the workflow? Is it throwing an error during Create? If so, what is the error?

Hi Jobin, No error. I just want it to be UNASSIGNED instead of Automatic on create screen. Have re-indexed jira as well but still the situation is same.. Help will be appreciated..

Automatic can still set the assignee to unassigned depending on the default assignee configuration on component and project level. Is that not working? On the screen it will show automatic but the issue will be unassigned after creation.
