Edit Multi User Picker FIeld

Cooper Latham April 24, 2023

Hi community, 

I am using Scriptrunner Cloud to attempt to retrieve the members of a Jira group (group1), and write those users to a multi user picker custom field.

  • I have a call to retrieve the group members' account IDs (working)
  • Using collect to format the list of account IDs to make it API call ready (?)
  • The edit/put call is working when values are manually typed in (working)
  • Error when executing the script -- "errors":{"customfield_xxxxx":"expected Object"}}
  • I suspect that my issue is with how I am formatting the list of account IDs, but I do not know of any alternatives.

---

def gusers = get("/rest/api/3/group/member?groupname=group1")
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
.asObject(Map)
def accountdetails = gusers.body.values as List<Map>
def accountids = accountdetails.accountId
def modaccountids = accountids.collect{'["id":' + '"' + it + '"]'}

print(modaccountids)

//api call
put("/rest/api/3/issue/ABC-123")
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
.queryString("overrideScreenSecurity", Boolean.TRUE)
.body([
"fields": [
"customfield_xxxxx": [
modaccountids
]
]
])
.asString()

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi community, 

After a few more cycles, I was able to resolve this issue. In my original post, I thought my issue was related to the way formatting the list of account IDs, and that did turn out to indeed be the issue. Here is how I resolved it...

 

Original: def modaccountids = accountids.collect{'["id":' + '"' + it + '"]'}

Updated: def idList = accountids.collect { item -> ["id": item] } 

 

Hopefully this can help the community at some point in the future. Cheers!

Hi @Cooper Latham ,
With mine issue, it turned out 

body: {"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"customfield_10246":"data was not an array"}}

 Would you please mind taking a look at my script? I still have not figured error cause. I am very appreciate with your help.
Here below is the script using in Post-function:

def issueKey = issue.key

def result = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
.body([
fields: [
"customfield_10246": [
"id": "61812ae5062f4c006918316e"
]
]
])
.asString()

My mistake, I just need to put accountId object between the "[ ]".
