Create Multiple Assignees in an Issue


Associate multiple assignees with an issue via custom fields, so each user corresponds to a specific issue status.


Several users are responsible for an specific status of an issue. Using this script I can specify which user corresponds to each stage.

Good to Know

  • Create custom fields to store the assignable users.
  • Associate this script with the All Issue Events event listener.
  • You can use this script in a post-function using the implicit issue variable instead of event.issue.
