    Hi Fatima,

    It's explained how to do it at "Assign issue to a user by Project Role".

    Setting default user for a project role with project properties, overrides doing it with user properties, i.e., project properties have priority over user properties.

    For setting default user by project role, you should edit your project's description: Administration > Projects > [click on your project] > Edit Project, and add strings with the following format:


    The following screenshot shows 2 examples:


    "Change Manager" and "Account Manager" are project role names, and "ada.lovelace" and "alan.turing" are user names.

    I know it.We need such case ChangeManager=ada.lovelace and Account Manager=ada.lovelace.How deal with this case?

    Fatima, I have tried exactly your project role names, and it's working perfectly in JIRA 7.0 with JIRA Workflow Toolbox 2.2.1.

    Can you, please, attach a screenshot of your project's description?

    We can have a meeting at Skype and have a screen-share. I'm available until 14:00 UTC. My user is fidel100r.

    Hi Fatima, I have also tried using project properties with project role ID's, and it also works in my case. Let me know whether you want also test again it with ID's. We can have a Skype meeting and test it in direct.
