We are looking to add participants based on a workflow transition but rather than adding it via users we would like to be able to do it from the group.
I found this article that gives us the option to do it by users defined in the script. Would it be possible to define it by group rather than individual users so the script would not have to be updated when users are added/leave.
One other option for you to consider is the Power Scripts add-on. With much fewer lines of code, you can quickly and easily add request participants on workflow transition based on groups.
We've put together a quick 5 min video showing you how to set this all up. We've also included the sample script we used so you can just copy and paste it to try it yourself.
Hope this helps!
This should be possible. Essentially, you'd just need to get the users out of the group and then set the field with those users. I answered a similar question here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Service-Desk-questions/Using-Scriptrunner-to-define-approvers-based-on-multiple-groups/qaq-p/664935#M8176
Use the groupManager to get users from a given group:
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def group = groupManager.getGroup("Managers")
def usersInGroup = groupManager.getUsersInGroup(group)
def fieldToSet = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Request Participants")
fieldToSet.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(fieldToSet), usersInGroup), new DefaultIssueChangeHolder())
Hello, Atlassian Community! I thought it would be fun to do something different for my teams' last retrospective of 2019 so I'm planning to do a "year in review" with info-graphics. Wha...
