Automation if mentioned user is not in group

Hello community,

I want to create an automation that checks the mentioned users in a comment to see if they are part of a specific group.

Do you have any ideas on whether this is possible, and if so, how the condition for the check should look?

Cheers, Sven

Hi @Sven Schmitting 

Just following up to learn if you solved this question yet. 

If not...a mentioned user cannot be directly checked for group membership, but a couple of work-arounds are:

  • Temporarily assign the user to the issue, use the User Condition with "user is in group" and specify the group, and then re-assign the issue back
  • Use a Send Web Request to call the REST API function to get all users in the group, and then check if your mentioned user is present.

Kind regards,

hi @Sven Schmitting 

JQL does not support to search the mentioned user with type = group. I thinks you maybe try hard code in JQL condition by list down one by one user in group you want, like below:

comment !~ userID-1 and comment !~ userID-2 and comment !~ ....
