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!

Our feature request mentions some other plugins that could be of use:

Ability to add watchers during issue creation

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.

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!

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
