Is there a way to set a Lead on a project's role

Would like tickets to auto assigne to the roles Lead on different statuses.

Is this possible.

So Role: QA

QA Lead: Mike

QA Testers : Bob, jack, Eric

When tickets go to status QA, want it to auto assign to the QA Lead. the QA Lead could change. But I would hate to go into the workflow every single time that happens and have it hard coded with a users name.

Create a new role called QA Lead. That way each project can have a QA Lead.

Then write a workflow post-function that takes the person in that role and assigns them the issue--stick it on the "Create" step. You can use a ProjectRoleManager object to get a list of ProjectRoleActors, and just grab the first User from that list and assign them the issue.

Writing that is pretty straightforward.
