Setting a default user for a certain status

Blommetje Jul 29, 2013

I have created a new workflow for my new JIRA environment. I find this rather difficult and one of the issue I run into is setting a default issue owner.

I have a flow where one status is 'Not allowed'. When an issue is not allowed, it should always be assigned to the Manager. How can I do this?

Thanks!

sorry i thought it was there on JSU plugin but it is my mistake.

this post function is ther in jira by default, just you need to select 'Update Issue Field' post function


then another screen will show like

enter the assignee name on field value and click on add

Hi, thanks for the reply but I don't really get it. Is this something like a Custom Field? If you have some more info that would be great!

Thnx. Got it working. One thing remains. When you open the Issue to Assign it, the field is empty. When you hit Save, then it IS assigned to the correct user but you do not see the name pre entered. This might confuse the users. Can this be improved?

Aside from this, it works well!
