Add group to many permission schemes at once - how to?

Hi All,

do you know a jelly script which adds one group tp many permission schemes?

We need to add a group to more than 50 permission schemes.

Thanks in advance,

check the following code
<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.JiraTagLib" xmlns:util="jelly:util" xmlns:j="jelly:core">
<util:tokenize var="projectKeys" delim=",">PROJECT1,PROJECT2,..</util:tokenize>
<j:forEach var="prokectKey" items="${projectKeys}">
<jira:SelectProjectScheme projectKey="${prokectKey}" permission-scheme="Permission Scheme Name"/>

Hi Ranbanam,

thanks for the code but as I see it misses the addGroup part, isn'it?



Looking at Jelly tags documentation, seems like jira:AddPermission should be able to do the trick. The 3rd code example seems to gives the possibility in adding permission to one or more existing permission scheme.

Hi Zulfadli,

thanks for the hint!


i think it should work

<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.JiraTagLib" xmlns:util="jelly:util" xmlns:j="jelly:core">
<util:tokenize var="permissionSchemeIDs" delim=",">schemeID1,schemeID2,..</util:tokenize>
<j:forEach var="permisionSchemeID" items="${permissionSchemeIDs}">
<jira:AddPermission schemeId="${permisionSchemeID}" group="jira-users" permissions="Browse,Create,Comment,Attach" type="group"/>
