Script runner - customizing subtask summary and assignee while creating sub-task

Within groovy listener context, I was able to create a subtask fine, based on a condition. Basically, if "Doc Required" field is checked to "yes", create a sub-task. The snippet as follows -

cfValues['Doc Required']?.getValue() == 'yes' && ! issue.subTaskObjects.any {it.issueTypeObject.name == "Bug"} 

where "Bug" is the Issue type in parent ticket. This does create sub-task.

Now, I set the Target issue summary as:

issue.summary = '[doc-subtask]' + issue.summary

also set the custom field as issue.assigneeId = 'docs@xyz.com' 

The problem is when the sub-task issue is created, it takes only one of the two. Sometimes it takes up issue.summary while some other times, it takes up issue.assigneeId. But not both of them together. 

How can I have both of them together, in the sub-task ticket ? Also, see if my approach is right for what I am describing. 

Jamie - thanks for your time.

try:

Additional issue action:

issue.assigneeId = "<UserName>"
issue.summary = '[doc-subtask]' + issue.summary

 

 

Udo - thanks and it works. sorry for overlooking the fact that the issue action text box can hold multiple lines.
