Which event is Jira supposed to fire?


My question is very easy. We have a workflow transition from 1 status to another. There's a transition screen configured there (assigning the issue and some custom fields are on that screen) + a post-function is configured to fire a Generic Event. If we change the assignee during the transition, does Jira fire a Issue Updated or Issue Assigned event?
The reason why I'm asking this is that 1 of our custom solutions has started to act different. It somehow now catches this event as Issue Assigned, however I am pretty sure it's always been Issue Updated. We have a listener that catches Issue Assigned event separately and now this messes up our whole logic.

Best regards,

It used to be that a transition would only fire the post-function event (generic event in your case), but now changes all fire all of the events - you should be able to see a bundle of issue-assigned, issue-updated, and generic-event from your transition.
