Sub-Task Owner Assignment from Parent Custom Field.



Have a project with the following custom fields.

  • Release Engineer
  • Release QA Engineer

Post-function in workflow transition creates sub-tasks which should be assigned to specific users added to the custom fields above. Attempts to script such action have not been successful.


Reviewed available forum posts on assigning subtasks to custom field users but none of those scripts functioned as expected when added to the "Additional issue actions". We are using an older version of JIRA which might be the source of our issues, but it doesn't appear to function on older scripts either, for this particular desired output.

Current JIRA Version: v6.4.7
