Is there a way to temporary not being able to assign an issue to a user in JIRA (for example when he/she is on vacation and sets this status)?
It is not that easy to ask for another user to check his/her open issues orto create a new filter each time on a specific user when creation date = time when he's/she's on vacation.
Thanks for your ideas.
Maybe you can configure auto-reply email when on vacation? At least, the user that assigned the on-vacation-user would be notified or it will become a comment in the issue assigned. Example in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/5999/jira-users-on-vacation
Thanks for the tip Zulfadli, that would work for the first issue (comment Out of Office from auto-reply in the corresponding ticket). But auto-replies wouldn't be sent for other tickets (eventual assigned by another user), as they are sent only once to the same incoming email address.
We built a plugin to handle this use case requested by a client. It allows the assignee to set the duration which he/she is on vacation and specify the covering personnel to reassign the issue to at individual project level. It also allow adding a out of office message as a comment to the issue.
You can check out the Out of Office Assistant plugin at the Atlassian Marketplace.
Hope it is useful for you.
