Subtask Default Fields with ScriptRunner don't work for Assignee

Paula Lehmann April 12, 2018

It works for summary, description and compontens, but it don't inherit the assignee.

This is the script I used as Server-Side-Script for an added visible field (summary):

Still, when I click on "Create a subtask" Assignee-Field stays empty. 


When I add this line

2018-04-17 17_13-Behaviours - SQL Projekt AG JIRA Testsystem.png

the assignee appears in the description-field. So it is possible to get the value. Why it then won't work with the assignee-field?


We use Jira Server 7.7.0 and ScriptRunner 5.3.13 (latest Version).

We update Jira tomorrow to 7.9.0

It looks like you are setting by user ID. If I remember correctly, I think you might need to set by username.

Hey Joshua,

can you give me the full line as example pls? :)


The server-side script I showed above is an example from Adaptavist website:


The example there is:



I tried to give out the value in the description field. For that I changed the line to this:



Expected output: Assignee ID in the DESCRIPTION-field --> right

Why it doesn't work with the ASSIGNEE-field?
