Scriptrunner: set assignee of subtask based on custom user field in parent

Hi everyone,

Sorry for another Scriptrunner question - I promise I have been trying to find a solution in the documentaiton. 

When creating a sub-task via scripted post-function, I need to set the Assignee value of the sub-task by copying a value from a custom user picker field.  I assume this is not an unusual sort of thing, but I can't find a good example to copy from.

It's not unusual at all, we often nominate people as responsible and want to cascade that down to sub-tasks of the issues. should be easily modified to do what you want.  (Please yell if you get stuck on re-arranging it)

Thanks Nic!  This is exactly the page I was looking for! 

Since writing, the requirement changed and has become a bit more complex.  Before I make another post I'll see about finding a documented solution.  Thanks!

No problem.  It's worth a look through the rest of the library scripts - there's some good stuff in there, even a couple of my scripts have made it in.

And we're trying to add more.  I think Silviya added a "contribute your own script" function a few weeks ago, so if you got something to work well and feel like sharing...
