that's exactly the right way to go - the reason for this being configurable is that in many teams, multiple people work on a story, and the issue assignee is just the "owner" or main responsible person. If you have a 1:1 mapping between assignee and the person doing the work, then changing the assignee import level does the job. side note: Release 1.12.6 recently added that when changing the assignee in Portfolio, in case it is a single person, gets commited to the issue assignee in JIRA too (there's a setting to turn this on/off as well)
