In the JIRA Automation plugin, can I use the Edit action to assign tickets as 'Automatic' so that the ticket will use the default assignee?

The objective: Have tickets that are moved from one project to another to be assigned to the default assignee (project or component defaults)

 

Using the Edit action in the JIRA automation plugin, I am trying to have issues that move from one project to another be assigned to 'Automatic' so that it will either use the project Default Assignee or the Component Default Assignees.

In the 'Edit Fields' section, I can change the assignee with:

assignee=[username]

However, this does not work:

assignee=Automatic

Is there any way for me to assign the default assignees?

I just figured it out. The value to put in for 'Automatic' is actually just -1.

So you would put the following to have it assigned to default:

assignee=-1

Looks promising! Maybe I require a solution again in the future. For the time being I changed our actual process and don't want to change it again.

Thanks
