I need to set the default value 'Automatic' to the field 'Assignee' . By default JIRA does this only in Create Issue screen. I use JIRA 5.1.3.
Any work around ?
May I ask why would you want to do this for the Edit Issue screen? Its value is Automatic in Create Issue screen because the default assignee of issues in a project by default is the project lead. Therefore the Automatic value determines that the project lead is the assignee. If u edit the issue, and change the assignee to "Automatic", it will still put the project lead as assignee.
We wanted to implement a workflow where on Reopen, the issue is assigned to the Project Lead unless the user specifies something else.
If I place the assignee field on the transition screen, I can't set it to show "Automatic", it'll show the previous assignee.
If I use a post-function to assign the issue to the Project Lead, I'll have to remove the Assignee field from the transition screen because the post function overwrites whatever the user chose.
So - there really is no way to set the Assignee to NULL before showing the transition screen, right?
