Update multi picker group via custom listener

Hi There,

The following groovy code works fine on a post function but doesn't on custom listener of "Assign" or "Update" event.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def multiGroupCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Stage Approver") //multigroup picker custom field

def TeamDatagroup = groupManager.getGroup("TeamData Approvers") //jira group
def BOgroup = groupManager.getGroup("Business Owners") //jira group
def groupList = [TeamDatagroup, BOgroup]
issue.setCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf, groupList)

 

Can someone please advise on why that could be and how to fix this.

It would be something like this

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption


def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def multiGroupCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Stage Approver") //multigroup picker custom field

def TeamDatagroup = groupManager.getGroup("TeamData Approvers") //jira group
def BOgroup = groupManager.getGroup("Business Owners") //jira group
def groupList = [TeamDatagroup, BOgroup]
def curUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
event.issue.setCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf, groupList)

ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(curUser, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

Awesome, works like a charm @Alexey Matveev _cPrime_ . Appreciate your help.

 

One more quick followup question if you can, when I update this multipicker group field it's over writing all the existing content. Is it possible to append the group to the existing values in this field?

It would be something like this

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption


def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def multiGroupCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Stage Approver") //multigroup picker custom field

def TeamDatagroup = groupManager.getGroup("TeamData Approvers") //jira group
def BOgroup = groupManager.getGroup("Business Owners") //jira group
def groupList = [TeamDatagroup, BOgroup]
def curUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def groupListCur = event.issue.getCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf)
groupList = groupList.addAll(groupListCur)
event.issue.setCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf, groupList)

ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(curUser, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

I did not check the code, but the idea is to retrieve the current value of the custom field which would be also an array and then add your array to it. and then save the combined array to the custom field

Thanks @Alexey Matveev _cPrime_ that's helpful. I tried something similar to what you advised(except to my rookie knowledge on groovy, so please excuse that)  it's complaining about the following

Try like this

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption


def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def multiGroupCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Stage Approver") //multigroup picker custom field

def TeamDatagroup = groupManager.getGroup("TeamData Approvers") //jira group
def BOgroup = groupManager.getGroup("Business Owners") //jira group
def groupList = [TeamDatagroup, BOgroup]
def curUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def groupListCur = event.issue.getCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf)
groupList.addAll(groupListCur)
event.issue.setCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf, groupList)

ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(curUser, issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

Thanks Alex for your continued support. That worked like a charm, you are a star. Appreciate all your help.
