go to the project administartion page and select the Components from left side tabs

ther you can add details about component and select deafult Assignee as component lead then issues will get assined to component lead

check the following doc for more information


i have added component succesfully to the project. i just want to make that filed visbile while creating the ticket and set a post function in workflow to that will assign ticket to component lead.

add the component field to the create screen and no need to configure postfunction to assign issue to component lead if you set Default Assignee(last column on components screen) as component lead while creating component on project details page

thanks.. however i am having hard time in adding that field in create screen. Will the component field appear as a field componet and i can add it the to the screen?

Hi Neeta,

Search in the select box Fields to add for the Components field, that is the field you need.

Best regards


the component field name should be visible as "Component/s"
