Link issue assignee to Portfolio member

Is there a way to sync the assignee on an issue to the member assigned to the task in Portfolio?

I found this setting under the plan configuration settings. Changing the import level to Story did the trick for us. smile

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) 

I'm be interested to know the answer to this too. I had to manually assign tickets that auto created via Portfolio. Super frustrating!
