ScriptRunner: set email address from custom field

I am trying to dynamically set the recipient addresses based on the settings of a custom field ('Notification List', checkbox collection contains a list of department)

In the condition & configuration section, I have a 

if ('Engineering' in cfValues['Notification List']*.value) {
recipients = recipients + ",addr1@host.com"
}
if ('Purchasing' in cfValues['Notification List']*.value) {
recipients = recipients + ",addr2@host.com"
}
mail.setTo(recipients)

So far so good, and working as expected

However, I'd like to pull from another custom field (ProjMgr) for one of the conditions

if ('Project Management' in cfValues['Notification List']*.value) {
    pm = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("ProjMgr")
    pmValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(pm)
    recipients = recipients + "," + pmValue
}

ProjMgr is User Picker type.  In this case, I got the user id in pmvalue.  How can I find the user's email address to construct the recipients list?

Maybe you try the following:

ger().getCustomFieldObjectByName("ProjMgr")

...
    pmValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(pm)
	if (pmValue != null && !((String) pmVavlue).isEmpty())
	{
		def user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByKey((String) pmValue);
		def mail = user.getEmailAddress() 
	}
 .....

Hope this helps!

Thanks Julian.

 

I got this error "Cannot invoke method getEmailAddress() on null object" when I tried to preview my codes. 

What does: "(String) pmValue " produce? Add some logging for that variable.

Basically no user can be found with that key.

pmValue returns "jackson.loong(jackson.loong)"
and
user returns null

 

I ended up using the following codes segment and seems to work

if ('Project Management' in cfValues['Notification List']*.value) {
    def pm = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("ProjMgr")
    if (pm != null) {
        def pmValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(pm)
        if (pmValue != null && !((String) pmValue).isEmpty()) {
            def mailbox = ((ApplicationUser) pmValue).getEmailAddress() 
            recipients = recipients + "," + mailbox            
        }
     }
}

pmValue in your emample above should actually be an ApplicationUser object (assuming JIRA 7).

So the email address would be 

pmValue.emailAddress
