Hi Ispas,

Why would you need to do that? If an issue has some progress, despite you change the assignee, the status should be the same. doesnt it?

Please, give us more info.

Find or write a "listener" that traps "issue assigned" and "issue updated" events, plus all events that happen during transitions where you have places the assignee field on the transition screen.

It should then be coded to check that assignee has changed and fire the (potentially second) transition to the new status according to your workflow and business logic.
