Hi @Anna 

It is not very obvious but you can do that using smart values. Try the following in the edit issue action.

"fields": {
"assignee": {{issue.People field. accountId}}

Here "People field" is your field.


Thanks ! That worked just find. The problem was that I wasn't using accountId but userName 


It also works with the action to assign.

Hi Anna,

I would think you can do that with Automation For Jira, but you would need to test it. Next-gen can be a little difficult with using Automation.

I spoke too soon - I can't see the new field I created under People.
