How to use jira scriptrunner to create a rest endpoint for project admin do user management

As only admin able to manage user group, I am wondering if I can create a rest end point in scriptrunner, which allow project admin to manage user group by using an generic admin ID and password. 


Yes you could.

I imagine that what you want to do is create a list of functions accessed by a login params that project admins could acess so that they could:

1. Add users to groups

2. Remove users to groups

3. Grant permissions. 

and many more. It might be a bit too much work though.

Do give more information if you need anything more specific, this question is a bit thin on that.




I have script as below, 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def uu = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
def user = uu.getUserByName("boris.georgiev")
def group = uu.getGroupObject("jira-developers")
uu.addUserToGroup(group, user.getDirectoryUser())

but got error, Could you help me take a look? 

Qi, I cannot help you if I don't know what the error is.

Please provide me with the exception that you are getting and I'll look into it.



Is there any way I can create usergroup?

Take a look at this.

You can get that component by:


Hope this helps.
