Fast track is not triggered by Issue Assigned event when assignee is edited inline

We are running JIRA v6.4.5#64020-sha1:78acd6c together with  Script Runner and we need to trigger a scripted action (using a Fast-track transition an issue script listener by Script Runner) relying on the Issue Assigned event.

It works perfect with "Assign" button and "Assign to me" link. But nothing happens when users edit assignee inline. We could not find any exceptions in log files.

Atlassian support says it has nothing to do with JIRA itself not firing an Issu Assign event, but rather how the plugin works. 

Please advise.

You are right... I've created There is a bit more info there.

In the meantime you could also listen for Issue Updated and check if the assignee has changed, if eventType == 2.

Jamie, thank you for a suggestion, i will definitely try to implement it. However, for some reason i cannot view the referenced ticket and see the information you refer to.

Jamie, can you, please help me with the condition syntax for your workaground? What i have in place now is:


return( issue.getStatusObject().getName()=="In Progress");

How do I change it to also verify the eventType?

Thank you.

Jamie, I can not access still. This matter is becoming critical.

Also condition

return( issue.getStatusObject().getName()=="In Progress" && issue.assignee != originalIssue.assignee

Does not seem to do the trick. Please advise as soon as possible.

In the docs it says that construct is for workflow functions only, you want something like:

changeItems.any {
    it.get('field') == 'assignee'

Jamie, pardon my ignorance, but I cannot quickly find how to leverage eventType condition, can you, please point me to a code snippet.
