Jira Cloud ScriptRunner - Display name for user

Hi all,

We are using JIRA Cloud and Script Runner. How I can extract display name of assignee of task in post-function? I need to put it to task summary later.


Thank you in advance for the answers!

Hi Pavel,

The display name of the assignee should be available like this:

def assigneeName = issue.fields.assignee?.displayName

The question mark is there in case assignee is not set yet, in which case the code will not throw an error, but assigneeName will be null.
