How to change the project default assignee from unassigned to project lead in the entitites XML?

Dear All,

we have a backup xml and we need to change the project default assignee from unassigned to the project lead. Hence there are some changes we had to make in the XML another backup would be very cumbersome.

Is there a way to change manually the project default assigne in the entitities xml?

Thanks in advance,

Rumi

Hi Rumi,

There's no easy way to do this in the XML. You'd have to manually search for issues that are in the state that you are looking for and modify them. But I don't think there is a way to automate it.
