How to set assignee based on the condition

I would like to set the below condition after submitting the ticket. After the ticket is submitted, I need to check the assignee field for the below conditions and set it accordingly. I know I can set groovy script set to run in the post function in the create issue workflow. But I need the groovy script reference or example to achieve this.

If (assignee == Automatic)


Set assignee == reporter


If (assignee == 'prakash')


Set assignee == 'prakash'


How do I achieve this ?

You might want to take a look at the Script Runner Add On ( which has the post function for this.

Hi Timothy,

I am brand new to groovy script, it will be helpful to me if you could provide me some scripts related to this .
