I need to create a workflow and assign the tasks to a group. Edited



I need to create a workflow, which will let me assign the opened/reopened task to a group. after this it will be automatically assigned to the group member who don't have a tsak in his/her queue or have minimum number of tasks.


is this doable using the triggers or conditions?

Your fast help is appreciated.

It is not possible out of the box. You would need to develop a custom post function using such plugins as Adaptivist scriptrunner or Power scripts. Or develop your own plugin.

Hi @dima dirbashi,

Like Alexey mentioned, this unfortunately can't be accomplished using JIRA Core functionality. But you can install an add-on like Power Scripts that would help you auto-assign the task to a group.

We've actually put together a short 6 min video walking you through the steps on how to setup Power Scripts and execute the script. We've even included the sample script we used so you can just copy and paste to try it for yourself.

Hope this helps!
