      Hi All,

      The main reason for the inclusion of the auto assign feature in GreenHopper Classic is a condition in the JIRA default workflow on the transition from 'Open' to 'In Progress' that allows only the assignee to perform the transition. The auto assign feature was never a good solution to this because it will only be effective in the GreenHopper screens (in the JIRA view issue screen a user would still be unable to transition the issue without manually assigning it to themselves).

      There are two more general solutions to this problem:

      • Remove the condition on the transition so that issues can be transitioned without needing to change the assignee
      • Alter the transition so that it automatically assigns the issue to the user performing the transition

      Both of these solutions can be achieved via the JIRA workflow configuration. Some screenshots are shown in the switching to GreenHopper 6 FAQ

      Since the workflow approach is more flexible we will not be reimplementing this functionality in the Rapid Board.

      Thank you.

      Regards,
      Shaun Clowes

      Description

      This feature request from: JST-24762:

      Why is not auto-assign included for the rapid board? And is it planned as a functionality in the future? And if so; when?

      Workaround

      Add the "Assign the issue to the current user" Post Function in "Start Progress" transition.
