Post function for setting assignee based on component

In the post-functions for my workflow I am looking to set the assignee to the last person of a project role based on what the component is.  Example: if the component equals "SE", set the assignee to the last user assigned the task from the "SE" project role.

There is a workaround for this where I can create different issues types with different workflows (i.e. SE Bug, ID Bug, Producer Bug).  I am trying to avoid this because if there are 3 issue types and 3 roles in play, that would be 9 workflows.  My hope is one workflow where you can change the component in order to guide which assignee something goes to.

Does anyone know what the post-function for this would look like?

Try the "Set Field Value to constant or Groovy expression"

  • Field: Assignee
  • Value: Assignee that you like
  • Conditional Execution: true
  • Groovy Expression: put your logic here.


I don't see the option for "Set Field Value to constant or Groovy expression".  Is that from a paid plugin?  I was hoping to do this without anymore plugins.  I do have Script Runner installed though.
