project/component lead as additional assignee

Hi,

 

To explain the situation; we have 3 teams working on 1 project. To keep the backlog of the teams clean, I have created a filter that shows only the team specific issues. This filter looks at the additional assignee (custom) field. For this I have added 3 users: Team 1, 2 and 3 whcih can be selected in this field .

Now I would like to auto fill the field when an issue is created by selecting the component lead (a team). The problem is that I cannot seem to do this with a post funtion?

are there any other ideas?

You should be able to do it with an inline script post function.  This question shows a sample of such a script that is very similar in that it checks against component, with the difference being they are setting the normal assignee and not a custom field.  https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/30947704/answers/30947713 .

Why not just use the Components? You will have all the benefits:

  • You know which team a ticket belongs to (Component = Team A)
  • A ticket will only have one true Assignee (Instead of "assignee = Team A" custom field)
  • The Backlog filters can be easily updated
  • Plus, You now have a Component Lead which may be the lead of that team.

We thought about that, but we already use components what they are meant for; specific parts of the project/software. The additional assignee field is already present (since multiple developers could be working on 1 story...it happens :-), so why not use if to also add a Team (at least that was what we thought).
