In the Create Issue Transition does not Update Assignee

Hi ,

I tried using post functions

if i use "Update Issue Field" to particular user  then assignee status is  updating

where as  i need to assigne to specific group  .Members.

Say for Ex:  I created an issue when i click on send to review button (i added assignee feild in the send to review button ) when i assign to specific member(1) in the review managers group .the  ticket Assignee status is not updating

Below is the screen shot .

Hi Shiva,

It's not possible to assign an issue to a group.

The whole idea behind assignee is that one person is responsible for the ticket.

Best regards,
