using script runner plugin you can do this, sample code here just you need to do little bit changes as per custom field types

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
// added line no.1
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
MutableIssue issue = issue
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField customFieldX = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("Custom field x")
CustomField customFieldZ = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("Custom field Z")
def xFieldVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldX)
def zFieldVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldZ)
   if(xFieldVal == "x" ){
   User userA=ComponentManager.getInstance().getUserUtil().getUser('person A')    
if(zFieldVal =="t"){
User userB=ComponentManager.getInstance().getUserUtil().getUser('person B')

do you mean you have to copy value from custom field to assignee?

What I wanted to do is the following:

If the customfield x = y ,then assign to A person;

If the customfield z = t , then assign to B person.

Or you need to write your own plugin with a workflow post function.

In the post function you can get custom field values and change the assignee of the user as Rambanam said.

Hi again,

JIRA Enhancer Plugin has a post function "Assign issue to a role based on a field in issue"

You can do such assignment using this plugin

Hello, you can use the following ways for solution

Step 1 : The Field Assignee will take the value from yourcustomfield (with post function)

Step 2 : You can use the javascript codes. for yourcustomfield value selection.


var x = document.getElementById('customfield_999');

var y = document.getElementById('customfield_998');










like this...

Step 3 : using script runner plugin
