On transition to InProgress, subtasks of this issue should be assigned to 'xyz' user. How to do that?

Through groovy script  on an issue, how to write code to set assignees for the subtasks of the issue? I tried getting the subtask objects and iterating through each one of them and setting the assignee id, but i get the error that '"cannot set read-only property: AssigneeId". How should I go about this?

Issue class is just represents issue. All methods to modify it are into MutableIssue. Issue.getSubTaskObjects() return collection of Issue objects. Since it is requered to transform it into MutableIssue ones. I usually do it like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

MutableIssue mutableIssue;
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();

for(Issue subtask: issue.getSubTaskObjects()){
    mutableIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(subtask.getId())

@Vasiliy Zverev but this doesnt change the assignee id of the subtask issue. It just sets it for the mutable issue object we created. right?

Okay I just ran an updateissue() and it worked! Thanks a lot!!!!  laugh
