How can I limit the Assignee field based on the other users of the custom field group picker

Hi All, is it possible to populate assignee field to only assign the issue based on the group that is on the request using scriptrunner? example is Group ABC is the chosen group and it has 1,2,3,4,5 as users. only 1,2,3,4,5 users can be assigned . if you have sample code to start with, that would be great. thanks

If you are creating and using a scriptrunner calculated custom field for Assignee, then it is possible to write such a script.

Scripts can not change behaviour of System Assignee field. 

However in Project Management for the project , you can set Assignable user permission. 

Whatever users have this permission only they can be selected as Assignee.




Hi @Prakhar Srivastav _Bob Swift Atlassian Apps_ , can you explain further calculated custom field for assignee? and do you have sample code to start with? Thank you

@Alvin Parreno

You can start from here :

Create a scripted field.

Select type as Single User Select.

Then experiment with scripts like below :

Hi Alvin,

You don't have to use scriptrunner, you can simply set the step property in the workflow to be   and then the name of the group

Hope that helps


Hi @Susan Hauth _Jira Queen_, thank you for your help. the group should change dynamically, I think I need a listener for this one? or a behavior

Hi ALvin,

That's a different question.  So scriptrunner could perhaps help with that.



Hi @Alvin Parreno 

Did you get this working? We have like the same requirement, not on the assignee field but another custom user field that should be limited to a group that is selected just before.
