Set Assignee based on customfield value on create post-function

Hello, 

im trying to set the assignee based on customfeild value with below code:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
 
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
IssueManager issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject('AD-2')
String adjValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11905));
def user = ComponentManager.instance.userUtil.getUserObject('customer.care')
if (adjValue >= "100")
	return issue.setAssignee(user)
				else adjValue

It throws no error but when i run in script console, the assignee is not changed, i've checked the project permission to ensure that set assign is also enable?

any suggestions?

Many thanks, 

Pon

Changes must be stored into DB. Into all postfucntion exept create one there is a postfunction to store changes to DB.

For create transition there are two options:

  1. add code to store chages
  2. add build-in postfunction to store chages

Here is rafactored code

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.UpdateIssueRequest

MutableIssue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject('AD-2')

String adjValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(11905));

if (adjValue >= "100")
    return issue.setAssignee(ComponentManager.instance.userUtil.getUserObject('customer.care'))
else
    adjValue

//it is requred to store changes into a DB
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(
        ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser(),
        issue,
        UpdateIssueRequest.builder().eventDispatchOption(EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED).sendMail(false).build()
)

Ahhh i always forget this! Thank you again Vasiliy!!
