Hi Mohammad,

you can do it like that:

  • create a group with all your QA members, call it "QA members group" or so
  • create a custom field, e.g. "QA members", type User Picker
  • configure the new field
  • Edit User Filtering, add the group to the filter and save
  • Put that field on your transition screen
  • In your workflow, add a postfunction, which copies the QA member to the assignee field

That's it. smile

 

does not find any post function option in the available list to copy member. can u tell me which postfunction should i select from the given list of postfunction

Hi Mohammad,

you're right. With plain Jira, there is no post function for that. I forgot.

But there is a free add on for Jira: Suite Utilities for JIRA - this plugin is adding a post-function "Copy Value From Other Field" which you can use to copy the user from the custom field to the assignee field.

hi Thomas,

I have installed your suggested plugin. can u please explain me this step

  • Edit User Filtering, add the group to the filter and save

Hi Mohammad,

no problem: 

I think, you have created the custom field? If so, go to Administration -> Issues -> Custom Fields

Search your new custom field and select "Configure" from the gear on the right side of the screen.

In the following screen, you see the configuration scheme. The last entry there is "User Filtering" - Click on "Edit User Filtering".

Then enable "Enable group or project role filtering", select your "QA members" group and click "Add".

You should see the group now under "Active filters" on this page.

Then click on Save and you are ready. Now this user picker is showing only users of your "QA members" group.

Thanks Thomas,

its working.  i have one more question. I dont want to allow user to filter users using other filter showing in users window.

This is a global permission called "Browse Users". Removing this permission is described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/managing-global-permissions-802592439.html#Managingglobalpermissions-Removingglobalpermissions

But I don't know, if the solution with the custom field still works, if you disable the global permission. You have to try.
