How to set watcher based on custom field with Scriptrunner Edited

Hi Guys,

today is the first-time that I'm attempting to use scriptrunner. Being someone thats never coded before, its proving to be an interesting challenge.

The user requirement should be easy,

1 When customfield Severity -cf[11807] = High

2 Add the JIRA group "TSM Managers" to the watchers 

My idea, is to add the script into the post function for the workflow.

Sounds simple and probably is when you understand how scriptrunner works.

Thanks for your help.

You can not add groups as watchers. You can add only users.

You should still be able to extract the users from the group and add them to the watchers list.

Thanks Alexey,

As we only have x3 users whom need to be notified when the ticket severity is high,  we decided to hardcore them to the watchers list.

 Run a Groovy script against the current issue:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

def user1 = userManager.getUserByName("arey")
def user2 = userManager.getUserByName("seboursi")
def user3 = userManager.getUserByName("vrakotom")
def Sev = issue.get("customfield_11834")

if(Sev == "High") {
watcherManager.startWatching(user1, issue)
watcherManager.startWatching(user2, issue)
watcherManager.startWatching(user3, issue)


Thanks for your help.

Now Ive been asked to setup a NEW "calculated field" which requires a script that is above my basic coding levels!



What kind of calculated field?

It shows that it is missing a } at the end of this but when I put that it causes a bunch of other errors?
