For example, when an issue is moved to Ready for QA or In QA, it auto-assigns to the QA component lead that is set for the project.
The only method I see is to create an automation to assign to a specific person name, but trying to avoid having to change that automation every time there is a team member change. Would also like to be able to copy project config to a new project, and using component lead would again prevent having to update the automation for each new project.
Hi @Amber Arguijo -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
As you note, with automation rules there is no way yet to access the component lead from the issue smart value, and so do the assignment. Here are the suggestions to support that:
Until one of those are implemented a convoluted work-around would be to call the REST API from the automation rule (using a web request) to get all the components, pull out the lead using RegEx, and then make the assignment.
