How to add all or some ScriptRunner 'Built-in Scripts' (like 'Switch user') to an admin jira dialog?

I would like to have suggested all listed of at least some of 'Built-in Scripts' on an admin dialog menu, that I use very often every day as Jira Administrator (short key: "." or "gg").


For instance, 'Switch user' is a nice option to be the first candidate for such requirement. It bothers a lot to go to ScriptRunner menu first, and then search for the function.

Any suggestions/ instructions how I can do it locally?

Hi @Yana Stoliarova 

Unfortunately i dont think it is an easy to configure option.

Something similar to this topic is there for confluence . I suppose it is similar for JIRA as well.

But i do not think it will be worth to go through all these changes for this short cut.

Thank you. Agreed, that the approach is risky.

Hi @Yana Stoliarova

you still could bring this idea to the attention of Adaptavist so their product managers can have a look into your suggestion.

As Script Runner is an independent App and is maintained by Adaptavist this could be worth giving it a try. They are sometimes around in Community as well but in case they will not pick up from the post here you still could contact them via
