Adaptivist Scriptrunner custom email fails for only one user

I'm using Scriptrunner's out of-the-box custom email script to send emails when issues are created. They work, except for a single user. If this particular user creates the issue, the script fails and an email is not sent.

2019-03-20 09:55:44,059 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: Script function failed on issue: SCOM-2879, actionId: 1, file: null

Any ideas what could be up with this? The display name of the user looks just fine?

Hi @Travis Alexander
Can I see your script?


Hey @Alexander ,

I'm using the built-in post-function called "Send a custom email". So, I'm not sure how to access the script itself.

The HTML that I am using for the email content works just find and contains no errors when previewing, or when any other user creates an issue. 

Let me know what you think.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
