Need help in groovy

We have JMWE and JSU plugin available in JIRA server.

I want to have automatically a label set if the currentUser who creates the bug is not in a group "ABC".

So I would go to the create transition of bug- thats sure. 

I know nearly nothing about groovy- so I need your help at this point.

Hi @Anita Hütter ,

you can add a Set Field Value post-function, with the following settings:

- Field: Labels

- Value: your label (e.g. a-label)

- Options: "Add value(s) to the field" checked

- Conditional Execution:

{{ not (currentUser | isInGroup( "ABC" )) }}



Thank you for your answer!

I got one errormessage:  "We can't create this issue for you right now, it could be due to unsupported content you've entered into one or more of the issue fields. If this situation persists, contact your administrator as they'll be able to access more specific information in the log file." I triedto delete the postfunction - and I could create a bug. I tried to enter it before and after the "create origin" postfunction but it didn't work and the errormessage appeared.

I had to change your condition a little- after it worked:

!(currentUser.isInGroup( "ABC" ))

Thank you for your help!

Hi @Anita Hütter ,

that means you’re on Jira Server or Data Center, not Cloud as you selected when raising the question. 


You are right. Sorry that I mixed it
