When current assignee for a an issue is not available for maximum of 4-5 days, the issue should be assigned to the back-up person and should not be left unassigned. Can this be achieved using script runner?
Yes, that's possible.
You can use the script runner's "escalation service" feature. Wherein you can write a JQL to return you the issues which haven't been "updated" in last 5 days i.e. the "assignee" isn't available basically that would be interpreted as issue not updated.
So the JQL can be
project = X and resolution is empty and updatedDate < -5d
This will give you the issue List and then in issue actions you can select the issue action to change the assignee to the desired person.
Thanks for this update Tarun, also can you please help me with this- I want this feature which would automatically assign a new assignee for a particular issue of a project,agree i would write the JQL mentioned by you but then it will give the count of issue/ list of issue, does that mean we have to manually go to each issue and then change an assignee. Can you give me detailed solution or approach of how to implement this for my project in JIRA. Thanks in advance! @Tarun Sapra
