How to reassign multiple issues at the same time

We need to reassign a few issues at the same time. we tried the following solution:

Modifying Multiple ('Bulk') Issues https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Modifying+Multiple+%28%27Bulk%27%29+Issues

This solution allows the following bulk changes:

-Workflow Transition

-Delete

-Move

-Edit

-Watch / Stop Watching

However, it doesnt allow 'Changing the assignee'.

Is there another way we can reassign multiple issues at the same time?

Thanks

The best you can do is bulk-edit and change the assignee there. It won't fire "issue reassigned" events though, just "issue updated"

Great, Thanks Nic, I had not gone into the 'Edit Issue' to see the assignee is changable. This helps :)

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
