      Description

      Steps:
      1. Configure JIRA so that it's not possible to change assignee through Edit
      Issue link (only through Reassign).
      2. Use "Reassign" action in JIRA Client to change the assignee from A to B.
      3. Upload changes.

      Observed: assignee remains B for a short moment, then reverts to A. No changes
      are registered on JIRA.

      Expected: assignee should become B.

      Evaluation:
      We use JIRA's remote API call "editIssue" to change assignee, and it simply
      ignores fields which are not on the "edit issue" screen. We'll have to have
      assignee change uploaded through web interface via "Reassign" link, if not
      possible to do it through remote API.

          Another manifestation of the same problem: reassign would trigger a
          notification e-mail, while editing an issue would not.

          There may be other actions that are permitted for a user, that cannot edit a ticket. In our case, one can
          Attach file to this issue
          Attach screenshot to this issue
          Clone this issue
          Comment on this issue
          Create sub-task
          Link this issue to another issue

          If one or several of these are done via editIssue, they will fail too
