Scrum Rapid Board - auto assign on transition doesn't appear to be working?


I was unable to transition some story cards from "To Do" to "In Progress", but was able to move all directly to "Done". After comparing stories that I could transition to "In Progress" with those I couldn't it became clear that those stories were unassigned.

I've checked the following field in GreenHopper's global settings:

<input id="autoOn" style="vertical-align: baseline; padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" type="checkbox" checked="checked"/> <label for="autoOn">Auto assign - Enable the auto assign on card transition in the TaskBoard</label>

But it appears that it doesn't have any effect in the Rapid Board (but does work in GH's Task Board).

Is it meant to work?

Hi Prem,

At the moment this feature is not implemented on the Rapid Board, it's something we'd like to tackle in the future however.


Thanks for your quick response Shaun. No worries, not a big drama to work around.

You can just update your workflow, add a post function on the transitions "auto assign to current user". This will work everywhere in JIRA that way, not just on a rapidboard. In my opinion this is the better implementation for this anyway, as you want consistent behaviour whatever way a user is using...

Thanks for the tip. Wil this not affect when transitioning back to 'Reopened', though? If a manager were to move something that someone resolved too soon, for instance, we'd not want the manager who moved it to Reopened to be assigned the ticket.
