in my workflow when a story is delivered, can I set the transition to reassignee the story to my QA user? Also, If QA rejects the story, can transitions reassignee the story back to the programmer?

You can use "Update Issue Field" or "Copy value from Field to Field" post function. The firts one can be used if you know the value already and is same for all issues. Use the second one if the value is different on different issues and is stored in some other field.

thank you all for your help, update issue field worked perfectly for this.

Hi Chris,

Here it is some documentation about working with Post Functions in the workflow:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow#ConfiguringWorkflow-Applyingpostfunctionstotransitions

Like Jobin said, you can use the Update Issue Field for Assignee, description, summary and more.

Both of your needs...

Assign to QA when story is delivered
Assign back to Programmer in the event that QA reject the story

..can be achieved using the (free) JIRA Misc Workflows plugin.

Specifically, the post functions you need are:

Assign to role member

Assign to last role member

The problem is that On Demand you cannot install plugins

Gaaah! I read the question and not the tags.
