change assignee of issue using post function to the value of a custom field.


I have a custom field 'Product owner' which is a user picker(single field). 

I have a issue where i want to auto assign an Epic ticket to the user that is selected in the 'Product Owner' Field when going through a certain transition, I want to do this using a post function but i cannot work out how this is done. 

I do have a plugin of JMWE. Can someone please help me :)

Hi Emily,

Sure. You need to add the Set field value post-function to the transition. Select the "Assignee" field. Input the value as:

{{ issue.fields["Product Owner"].accountId }}

Save the post-function and publish the workflow.



thank you so much this has worked. I can use this throughout the workflow and its changed my life! very excited there was a solution to this! 

In THis post function, iam not able to find any space to enter the above query . It gives only three option , to set it to :unassigned, automatic, to a specific user. 


how can i set Assignee field same as product owner field , i do not have any plugin installed though for the workflows.

Note that you could also have used the Copy Value From Field To Field post-function to copy from the "Product Owner" field to the "Assignee" field. This would require zero scripting.
