owner change based on state and Role

Yaron Norani (47267064) | asked Nov 14 '12, 6:17 a.m.

I would like to implement an automatic change for the "owner" filed - kind of a  "push"  method.
I have a workflow with several states. I would like that the owner will be automatic changed when state is changed.

A user will have a Role and will be assigned to a project (my company's project).
For example: Joe is a QA manager for project 1.
Every time the work item will be in state "Resolved" (for example)  Joe will be automatic the owner (based on criteria of a role and the project).
What is the best way to perform it?
Can it be done without scripting it?

Hi Yaron,

The Implied Attributes precondition allows you to automatically assign the Current User as the owner when the work item is resolved, which I don't think is exactly what you want.  Information on how to set this up is available here:  I don't know of a predefined setting you can use.  You should be able to create a custom precondition (which requires coding) that will do what you want.  More information is available here:
