Set Tester as the Reporter by default, set Assignee when Resolution changes

  1. When someone logs a bug, set the Tester field(user picker) to that person (the Reporter) by default.

  2. For a bug, set Assignee when Resolution changes. If the Fix By or Tester is not filled in, then leave Assignee "Unassigned" (I have set "Unassigned" as the default for all the Components).

Resolution -> Assignee
Open (including new bug) -> Fix By
Fixed -> Tester
Need Information -> Tester
Invalid -> Tester
Duplicate -> Tester
Cannot Reproduce -> Tester
Reopen -> Fix By
Defer -> Project Lead
Perm Defer -> Project Lead
NA -> Tester
Vendor -> Fix B

Any thoughts?

Hello Manikanta,

All these simple Automation Rules can be performed with the add-on Automation Lite for JIRA (300 free executions p/ month). 

Please, check the example below:

@Petter Gonçalves,

Thanks for your reply!

Can we achieve this by script runner or JSU Add-on?

Hello Manikanta,

The functionality number 1 can be achieved by JSU, however, the second functionalities you mentioned can be achieved using ScriptRunner.

Here's a documentation with instructions to create the code on Script Runner and set a Field based on another Field's value using Conditions:

Script Runner Conditions

@Petter Gonçalves,

Thanks for taking time and replying I will try and update you.

You are welcome, Manikanta.

We will be waiting for your update.

Hi @Petter Gonçalves , How can I set the reporter as the tester by default in the JIRA cloud? TIA
