Next-gen Project - setting default assignee for different bugs based on selected component Edited

I have created a set of components to be selected when filing a Bug (Issue type). I want to define a rule to assign the "Bug" to someone specific based on the selected "Component". Also would like to get a notification done to a specific email when the "Bug" is filed. This is the workflow I was using in Bugzilla. I looked around but don't see how to do this using next-gen project in Jira.


Appreciate any pointers.

Hi @Rahul Gupta

In Next-Gen this isn't possible at this point with components, as they're not available at this point - see JSWCLOUD-17601

There are some available custom fields like the labels field you could use (click here for a list) - but you'd need to consider an app like Markus suggested for the second part.

Is there a need to use Next-Gen for this? In Classic, you could:

  1. Create a set of components in your project
  2. Make the assignee based on the component lead, and set the lead for each
  3. Add the component lead to the "issue create" notification if you want them to be notified

^ For sending to a single email address - you can send a notification to any single user. You could either send it to an existing user, or you could add a general email as a user and send the email when it is resolved or closed.

This resolves your need using Classic :)


Thanks Stephen. I will stay with Classic for now and wait till Next-gen incorporates these capabilities.

Hi @Rahul Gupta

I would recommend checking out CodeBarrel's plugin Automation For Jira. You'll definitely be able to do this with that. 



Thanks for the pointer Markus.
