'automatic assignee'

G'day

As I understand it the 'automatic' option for the assignee field relates to the default for that issue - a single default assignee.

Is there there ability that the workflow can be told the assignee at each step and therefore 'automatic' relates to the assignee at that point, which could be overridden by choosing a different name in the assignee dropdown?

Thanks for any insight.

Paul,

You can use the post-functions of the JIRA workflow to set the assignee on any transition. However to make this conditional, then you need a plugin like the JIRA Misc Workflow Conditions.

Basic and simple scripting problem: An old example with JJUPIN http://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/TR/Assigning+an+Issue+Preserving+The+User+Load

(but you can take a free plugin, like Jamie's Script Runner, and implement it yourself)

Hi Paul,

You could us the Update Issue Field post function to automatically assignee an issue during a transition in your workflow. But that will not give you the option to overrule it if necessary.

But ofcourse you always simply assign it to somebody else once the transistion has been completed.

Best regards,

Peter
