Hey Taher!

That should be accomplishable using a script like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours

//Get appropriate managers
def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

//Get your custom field
def customField = cfManager.getCustomFieldObject().find{it.name == "Custom Field Name"}
//Grab the application user that you'd like to add as a watcher from the custom field
def userToWatch = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)

//Set the user to watch the provided issue
watcherManager.startWatching(userToWatch, issue)

This script assumes that the custom field that you are working with is a SINGLE username and that you are using this script in an application that already provides the issue as a preset value.

If you could provide me with some more specifics as to what exactly you are needing this for, I could supply you with a more specified script :)

Let me know if that works for you!

Hi @Aidan Derossett _Adaptavist_, I'm trying to do a similar thing with our lira instance and scriptrunner. We have a custom field called 'Website' cf[11602] which is a checkbox selection with 3 choices.  I'd like to add 2 users as watchers if one particular checkbox is selected.  I've found a lot of old answers (pre jira 7), but none of them seem to work.  This is the most recent post, and seems fairly close to what I want to do. Could you help me modify this to work for my purpose?  Here's what I've been playing around with. I'm sure there are some imports the aren't necessary.  

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()


def user1 = userManager.getUserByName("user1")
def user2 = userManager.getUserByName("user2")
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject 'cf[11602]'

if(customField == 'Custom Field Value') {
watcherManager.startWatching(user1, issue)
watcherManager.startWatching(user2, issue)
}

 

I'm thinking...

def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject 'cf[11602]'

...is the problem, but I'm not sure how to get what I need.  

 

it's failing with this error:

 

Time (on server): Wed Jun 27 2018 01:00:54 GMT-0400 (EDT)

The following log information was produced by this execution. Use statements like:log.info("...") to record logging information.

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: customFieldManager for class: Script436
 at Script436.run(Script436.groovy:15)

So, this runs without error, but I dont get my watchers... :(

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField


def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def CustomFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()


def user1 = userManager.getUserByKey('importantUser1')
def user2 = userManager.getUserByKey('importantUser2')
def customField = CustomFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('MyCustomField')

if(customField == 'Custom Field Value') {
watcherManager.startWatching(user1, issue)
watcherManager.startWatching(user2, issue)
}

Hey @David Mason!

Sorry for my super late reply!

Would you mind creating a new community question for this so the contexts of the two questions don't get too mixed and mingled for others who may look over the question?

Just send me a link to the new question that you open and I can help you over there :D

Thanks!
Aidan

And I'm even later. Will do as I'm coming back around to the need for this.
