you select Add Postfunction in your workflow transition and select Update Issue Field postfunction as

and press Add then select Assignee in Issue Field and Value as your wished User.

Second thing you cannot add a group to an assignee field. Groups are allowed to restrict issues in Security Schemes & Notification Schemes.

Instead you have option that you make customfield for assignee with Group picker type.

You mean you want to assign the issue to specific users when you move the issue to a new status? If so, you can do it in the workflow post function of the transition. Just add a post function to update issue field (assignee in this case).

Thanks for your answer!

I will try this, but with the post-function, can i also assign the issue to a user-group ?

No, you can't assigne the issue to group!!
