we want to set a field in our tickets based on user properties.
I've already set up a property for users
Now i found the functionality within the workflows of post functions and i want to set the value of the single dropdown field "Modul" in a ticket which is to be created.
We have a couple of stakeholders and want to use the property to set the value of a ticket by default by this property.
But i cannot find a way to get this property value and setting the dropdown value based on this.
Hey @Simon Evers ,
I'm not fully comprehending your set up but i'll do my best.
My first question tho is "where did you set up the properties for these users?" Where is the data located that you will use for your criteria to then set a (I'm assuming custom field) value on the issue?
Hi @Dirk Ronsmans ,
first off, i have set the Jira Properties in the User Management within JIRA and in the User properties i set up the following property and named it
Then i switched to the workflow screen and in the transition "create" i added a post function where i now want to set the field "Modul" in the ticket to the value of the property of the user.
The field is a single dropdown value named "Modul" and contents multiple values
I just figured out where you set the properties, gotta say never used that before!
From the documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/update-roles-and-properties-for-jira-users-744721647.html
User properties are key-value pairs associated with Jira users. For example, a user property could be:
- key: Favorite color
- value: Green
User properties can be used by Atlassian marketplace apps to execute advanced functions.For example, an app could use user properties to automate post-functions in a workflow (as in the case of theJira Misc Workflow Extensions app), automatically assigning issues to a user based on its properties.You can also use this data to integrate Jira users with time tracking software.
Other than adding property data to the specified user, these user properties do not have an effect anywhere else in Jira.
I have a feeling tho you will not be able to use them yourself in a post function. They can be called by a marketplace app to do some things but It doesn't look like they are available directly.
They only seem available through the JMWE app (or possibly other plugins) where you can call them and use them. (in the same way that you would like to use them it seems)
But not directly from the build in workflows/post functions.
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 ...
