using issuetype field in workflow post condition to fill Assignee

I m failry new to groovy.please excuse if the question sounds trivial.

We have installed JIRA workflow misc extension on our instance and based on the issue type we want to update assignee. My groovy expression in conditional execution looks like

issue.get(issuetype) == bug

but this seems to be not working. I have tried all kinds of expressions == 'Bug'

issue.get(issuetype).getname() == bug

Is that we cannot set the condition based on issue type? assignee field gets updated based on my other custom fields values. Please assist

I am unfamiliar with doing this via script. However I am assuming that 'Assign the Current User' or 'Assign to Lead Developer (Component Lead' is not what you are after? 

I want to assign/update the Assignee field based on a predefined condition. So I'm using JIRA Misc workflow extension plugin. Where you can define the condition in the "Conditional Execution" section
