Scriptrunner post-function: Update reporter into value from a custom field

I have a custom field (user picker) containing a user name.

Tester: "userA" 

I'd like to add a scriptrunner post function that will update current reporter into the "userA" as the value of the custom field Tester.

 

Could anyone help me with the script?

Hi Thu,

Try a custom script post-function like 

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

def issue = issue as MutableIssue

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("UserPicker")
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as ApplicationUser

if (cfValue) {
    issue.setReporter(cfValue)
}
else {
    log.debug "Did not update the reporter because value of UserPicker field was null"
}

Please let me know if this does the trick.

regards, Thanos

Thank you for your support.

It works like magic!

This script is similar to what I want to do, except I want to set the reporter to a specific user depending if the custom field value equals 'Support'. Here is what I have:

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

def issue = issue as MutableIssue

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Origin")
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)

if (cfValue == 'Support') {
issue.setReporter('sthomson@ivansinsurance.com')
}
else {
log.debug "Did not update the reporter because custom field value was null"
}

 

However, I get the following error on the "setReporter()" line:

com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue#setReporter(java.lang.String). Please check if the declared type is right and if the method exists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

*Additional Info*

The script will run, but it is not logging the string, nor is it setting the reporter.

@Thanos Batagiannis [Adaptavist], thank you, your script helped me a lot!
