so i solved this my way: i added a gadget Filter Results to dashboard, with set up filter(assignee =
current user) --- so i removed "assigned to me" with "filter results"

Hi Peter,

What value is display under assigne when you get into issue view ?

How do you change assigne ? If in post-function then try to reindex changed issue.

IssueIndexManager indexManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueIndexManager();
try {
} catch (IndexException e) {

Does your post-function to change assigne is under or above default post script ?

when i am in issue view, i see correct new value. how can i reindex changed issue? in transition i have the default post script "Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database. "

my post function to change assignee is above the default post script ....

so you have to change it :)

BTW, take a look at

There was similar problem but with reporter field. I've written plugin that solves this problem. Raise an issue at to add assigne option if you wish do that by my plugin.

i need to have post function changing assignee under the post function reindexing?

the result is the same .... i have post function changing assignee above/under the post scrip reindexing and no change, still cant see the issue in dashboard-assigned on me ... :(

Sorry, it should be above default function - that is ok in your case. The easiest way for you is raise an issue as I suggest earlier and wait. I could do that tomorrow.

if you have time and will, please help me tomorrow :)

Try this:

hmm, but i need to copy value from another custom field (User Picker) to assignee. i am doing this via post function Copy Value From Field to Field , and it works, it copies the value, but i cant see the changed isuue in dasboard section "assigned to me" ... :(

Hi, I will add copy from User Picker field - good idea.

But your root problem is lack of indexing changed issues - your solutions will work but I don't think it is good idea - issues have still unupdated status in Issue Navigator.

in every transition, i checked, that every change in assignment is done above reindexing post script, and in dashboard i removed "assigned to me" and added "filter results" with filter (assignee=current user)
