This is a re-post of a question at S.O.
Our JIRA workflow for development issues goes something like this:
New -> In-Progress -> Resolved -!-> Reviewed -> Closed/Released
This is simplified, but should get the point across.
The Jira Assignee for New/In-Progress is simple: It may start out being assigned to anyone, but as soon as it's in-progress the developer that codifies the issues is the Assignee.
When the developer is done he will check-in and set the issue to
Now my "problem"(*) starts: Since the developer should not review the issue himself, the issue should be assigned to someone else for review. The reviewer can then approve it and set it to
Reviewed, after which it is ready to be included in a release. (details on how that works not relevant here)
The issue then ends up with the Assignee set to the reviewer, where the relevant person for the issue is actually the original developer.
I mean: When looking at Jira issues, I'm mostly interested in the Implementer, not the person that approved the change afterwards.
So the question(s) seems to be:
I guess one could add additional fields, but the fact that the defaults only have these two People should hint at something?
