Field behaviour to validate reporter is in specific group

Edited

Hello

I'm trying to create a field validation using behaviour, that I would like to run whenever someone changes the reporter of an issue (during creation or elsewhere in edit mode).

Basically, we need to make sure that the Reporter always belongs to a specific group.

I have tried something like the following, but without success.

//Required Imports
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

// Get a pointer to the reporter field and get user
def ReporterField = getFieldById("reporter")
def ReporterValue = ReporterField.value as ApplicationUser

if(groupManager.isUserInGroup(ReporterValue, 'ReportersGroup')){
ReporterField.setError("Reporter must be in Reporters group.")
ReporterField.setFormValue(null)
}else{
// If a valid value is entered clear any errors and accept the value
ReporterField.clearError()
}

 Please help!

Ok, I got it to work with this:

//Required Imports
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

// Get a pointer to the reporter field and get user
def reporterField = getFieldById("reporter")
def reporterValue = reporterField.getValue()
def reporterUser = userManager.getUserByName(reporterValue.toString())

if ( groupManager.isUserInGroup(reporterUser , "ReportersGroup")){
// Reporter is in the right group - clear all errors
reporterField.clearError()
}else{
// Reporter is not in the group, show error
reporterField.setError("Reporter must be in the Reporters group.")
reporterField.setFormValue(null)
}

Maybe try 

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.userManager

def reporterUser = userManager.getUserByName(ReporterField.value)
if(groupManager.isUserInGroup(reporterUser , 'ReportersGroup'){
...
}

Thank you, but it doesn't quite work either.

DId you actually try to run it?

Those static type checking errors are normal and expected with this. I generally ignore them.

But if you really need to eliminate the static type checking errors you could try

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.userManager

ApplicationUser reporterUser = userManager.getUserByName(ReporterField.value as String)
if(groupManager.isUserInGroup(reporterUser , 'ReportersGroup'){
...
}

I did not, no. I didn't know it could work even with the errors that were shown. Anyway, I did fix it in a way similar to yours, so, thanks!
