  • Using the "Assign to last role member" post function is assigning to a previous/first role member instead of the most recent one?!

Using the "Assign to last role member" post function is assigning to a previous/first role member instead of the most recent one?!

I have a review flow set-up in which issues are auto assigned back and forth between a set reviewer and the artist working on a ticket. Using the "Assign to last role member" post function works fine normally, except when the artist working on a ticket changes.

An artist(User) is assigned a ticket, when they hit the review button it assigns to an account called review_ready(not a User). Upon giving the artist feedback, the reviewer hits a button which performs the following post function.

"Script workflow function : Assign this issue to the most recent assignee who was a member of the Users role, including current assignee."

What should happen is that the issue should be assigned to the last artist the ticket had been assigned to, instead it assigns the ticket to the previous/first artist the ticket was on. This post function continues to assign the issue to the original artist, regardless of how many times it is manually assigned back to artist actually working on the ticket.

Why is the post function not assigning to the most recent User?
