add reporter as watcher on JiraCloud

Hi everyone ! 

I need to add the original reporter as watcher on issue create. All of the guides that i found online are for scriptrunner for jira server, but i'm running a cloud instance and the scripts ( in scriptrunner.. ) doesn´t run.

is there any way to do this??


Thanks!

I've updated my answer to fix this.

Hi Alejandro,

This script should work for you when configured to run on the Issue Updated event.

// Get the change history for the issue
List<Map> histories = get(issue.self)
        .queryString('expand', 'changelog')
        .asObject(Map)
        .body
        .changelog
        .histories as List<Map>

// Determine whether the reporter was the last updated field
Map reporterChange = histories.isEmpty() ? null : histories
        .last()
        .items
        .find { it['field'] == 'reporter' }

// If the reporter was the last updated field...
if (reporterChange) {
    // Add the previous reporter as a watcher
    def resp = post("/rest/api/2/issue/${issue.key}/watchers")
        .header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
        .body("""\"${reporterChange.from}\"""")
        .asString()
    assert resp.status == 204
}

I hope that helps,
Thanks,
Jon

Hi Alejandro,

This should be possible using a Script Listener in ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud, and I was going to provide some example code here for you, but I've run into a problem with the REST API that Atlassian provide for adding a watcher to an issue.

I'll post back here once I've figured out the problem.

Thanks,
Jon

ok Great ! 

It should not be only in the creation of the issue, but also every time that the reporter is modified.

so,  on reporter changed = add old reporter as watcher 

 

Thanks!

Alejandro

 

what i really need is that when the reporter changes, the old one is added to the watcher list.

i couldn´t find any plugin or method to do this.
