Set Assignee basing on other custom field is not working correctly


I am using behaviours plugin to set assignee during editing, here is my code:

FormField ass = getFieldById("assignee")
FormField formCurrent = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
currentValue = formCurrent.getValue()
 if(null != currentValue){
      System.out.println("set admin ");
 }else {
     System.out.println("set cc5 ");


My problem is: this script is only executed once, for a instance, when i click edit, script identify my field value is null, then set assignee as "cc5", but after i change my filed value, script never be triggered again.

Meanwhile, "description" , " summary" are modified automatically and dynamically basing on my field value i changed.


Why this problem is happening on assignee field only?

JIRA: 6.3.11

Script runner plugin: 3.0.7

Hi Ma Hao,

Instead of behaviour script you can use a post function and apply it on the transition.

we can set assignee depends upon user picker custom field.

i have used this script for JIRA 6.3.11

//MutableIssue myIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("PP-1")

MutableIssue myIssue = issue
Issue issue = issue;
log.error("----MY ISSUE KEY IS------"+myIssue)

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
/*def user_name = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Line Manager");

log.error("----------- USer Name Is-------"+user1)

def cfQAVerifier = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Line Manager");

String us =myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfQAVerifier).name;
log.error("-------- User name is--------"+us);
log.error("----------Assignee Set----"+myIssue.setAssigneeId(us));

//UserManager userManager = UserManager.getInstance();
User ud=ComponentManager.getInstance().getUserUtil().getUser(us)
log.error("--------- USER NAME IS ------"+ud)
