Scriptrunner: assignee value is not being copied when subtask is created though it was specified

Robert Horan Marketplace Partner Jun 24, 2020

I am using the "Create a sub-task" scripted post-function.  

In "Fields to copy" I selected "Custom" from the radio button options and chose 'Assignee'

When my subtasks are created they are unassigned.

EDIT: This also happens when I choose to copy all fields

Please help.

Hi @Robert Horan 

Two things I would check would be:

- Are you able to manually create a sub-task and assign it to the user of the parent issue?

- Are the "As User" that you chose in the post-function allowed/able to create sub-tasks/issues in the project?

Hi Mathis,

Thank you for your reply - you were right on both accounts.  I hadn't realized that this workflow was adjusted to include a post-function that set assignee (I hadn't added it) and I made the assumption (BAD IDEA) that if I didn't add one nobody else did.  Thanks for breaking me out of that thought pattern!

You’re welcome. Glad you found the issue :)
