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:
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).
