Reassign a bug to the developer (or last assignee) every time reopening


I have a requirement: every time I reopen a bug (either from In QA or from Done status) due to different reasons (code review fail, functional test fail or regression test fail), I want to automatically assign that bug to the same developer (last assignee) who had supposedly fixed it. I tried options in post-functions but didn't find any suitable options that supports my requirement. Some one please help to accomplish this? I am using Jira Cloud. 

I know it can be accomplished by using ScriptRunner and other plugins but due to Organization's IS policy I am not allowed to install any plugins. Is there is a solution available in Jira without any plugin?

Thanks in advance.

Open -> In Progress - In QA - Done

I suggest the following:

  1. create a custom user picker field called say “FixedBy” or whatever
  2. on the transition from In Progress to In QA add a past function to copy field Assignee to FixedBy
  3. on your reopen transitions use PF to copy field from FixedBy to Assignee
