@Thanos Batagiannis [Adaptavist] thank you for your response, if the Group picker1 or Group picker2  doest have a value anyone from following assignee, reporter,caseworker,supervisor can close the ticket. otherwise only Group1(single user picker) or Group 2(single user picker) can close the ticket. 

Hi Kumar, 

I am not sure I understand what should happen in the case that the Group Picker doesn't have any value, but I think the following snippet will help you

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def currentUser = currentUser as ApplicationUser
def issue = issue as MutableIssue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find { == "GroupPicker"}
def customFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField) as String

if (!customFieldValue) {
//the custom field doesn't have any value do something
else {
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.groupManager
def group = groupManager.getGroup(customFieldValue)
return groupManager.isUserInGroup(currentUser, group)
