When copying an issue, the field assigned_to is not set as expected
Environment: Redmine version 3.3.0.stable Ruby version 2.1.9-p490 (2016-03-30) [x64-mingw32] Rails version 4.2.6 Environment production Database adapter Mysql2 SCM: Git 2.13.3 Filesystem Redmine plugins: no plugin installed
I want to copy an existing issue. Its field assigned_to is empty.
In the issue form, I verify that the field is still empty, then click create.
Then the new issue has a user in the field assigned_to
I use a ruby debuger to run Redmine, and set a breakpoint in the function create in issues_controller.rb.
- Before calling @issue.save => @issue.assigned_to is empty
- After calling @issue.save => @issue.assigned_to contains a user.

Thank you for your answer Toshi.
I confirm that the copied issue had its category property filled. And that category is assigned to someone.
So ok, now I understand why the assigned to property get automatically filled.
But, in my opinion, it is neither straightforward behaviour, nor what users expect.
The users explicitly clear the property assigned to when copying an issue, because they don't want that issue to be assigned yet.
And by magic, the property get filled automatically.
For me, the user's decision to let that property blank should be respected, and not overwritten.
Is it possible to change the behaviour of the Redmine Core this way? Or at least, add an option?

You could change the behaviour by removing the assignee from the issue category altogether, although it is likely not exactly what you want.
Ok, this is a solution.
For me, this tracker can be close.
