I have a board with the following columns:
I would like to set up a role, that if I have an issue in the 'Issue' column and I assign it to somebody, then the issue automatically move to the 'Backlog'.
Is it possible?
Backlog is a built-in feature of Agile Boards. There is no reason to have the backlog be part of your workflow. Assuming you are using a Scrum board, when you don't have an issue in a Sprint, it's in the Backlog. The "Assign" function has no native automation capability, so you would need to write something custom to do what you want ,as designed. A Listener is probably the right choice of customization.
It might be easier for people to help if you explain the use case or problem you need to solve rather than the design you have in place now. There is probably a creative way to solve the problem that doesn't involve writing code, if we can make use of the standard JIRA paradigm.
