Set custom userpicker field with all users in specific role

Hi Everyone


We have a custom field that represents the Product Owner. During the workflow of the issue we have an automation "edit issue fields" action that sets the custom field to a manually entered list of users.

We currently have a Product Owner role in the project, and I would like to dynamically retrieve all the users in this role rather than updating hardcoded rules.

Hi @Rudi Strydom 

As far as I know, this is not directly possible at this point - the Action to set a Multi-user picker works off Group, but not Project Role.

If you could place the Product Owners into a Group instead, you could easily reference that in the Edit Issue Action.

For Project Role, there is a feature request to add this - vote for/watch AUT-279 


The other alternative, according to this question/answer, is:

One work-around would be to call the REST API with a web request from the rule to get the role information with this method:{projectIdOrKey}/role-getProjectRole

But, this isn't something I've personally tried!
