I want to be able to move a agile ticket from Open to In Progress without changing the assignee. When I go to the workflow step, Start Progress, and look at the post functions, there does not appear to be any of the post functions that are assigning the logged in user as the assignee:
How can I keep the assigned user from changing?
As Admin go in your Admin drop down menu to Issues.
Go to Workflows
Duplicate the default JIRA workflow
Click the (Start Progress) arrow going from OPEN to IN PROGRESS
Click on Post Functions
Remove "3. Assign the issue to the current user. Please note that the issue will only be assigned to the current user if the current user has the 'Assignable User' permission."
Add this to your Workflow to your projects
Even I have the same problem. I checked the Agile workflow post function and did not find any condition that will assign the issue to the user who drags the issue from to-do to In Progress state using Agile Board.
Even the Auto Assign option is unchecked in the JIRA Agile configuration. Anyone facing the same problem?
I had exactly this same problem and was able to fix it by running the "Simplify Workflow" function on the board configuration. Board->Configuration->Columns and click Simplify Workflow.
I'm new to Jira, so I don't know what other side effects this may have.
