How to Scriptrunner send custom email and add group picker (multiple) values?


I would like to be able to send the values of the group picker (multiple values) in the Scriptrunner send custom email function.

What I tried is this:

<% out << 
issue.getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("My Group Field"))

The results is this:



I already searched the internet and only found this:

But the problem is that it's about the possibility to copy the value to another field and I really don't now how and where I should even put the code. (Tried to put it on a transition with the post-function Script Post function and then Custom script post function but then I get method warnings. I guess this has to do with the fact that the script is for JIRA 6 and I'm running 7)

I also tried this:

def groups = (List<Group>) myIssue.getCustomFieldValue("My Group Field");
for(Group group:groups){

But that didn't work.

So I tried this:

<% out def groups = (List<Group>) myIssue.getCustomFieldValue("My Group Field");
for(Group group:groups){ %>

But then the mail doesn't even get send.

I think I have 2 options:

  1. I can solve it in the email template
  2. I can copy the values from the group picker (multiple values) to a text field

Does anybody have a solution?

Thanks in advance.

You should try:

<% out <<
issue.getCustomFieldValue(com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("My Group Field"))*.name

That should get the names of the groups for you.

The syntax of the Groovy GString templates are a little tricky, they are a bit picky about what you can do in them:

It works! Thank you so much laugh

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 ...
