Adding roles to automation plugin comment visibility

How can you add roles to the drop down in the JIRA Automation Plugin Comment Issue Action - Comment Visibility drop down?


This install only has options for All Users and Administrators

The documentation video shows that more options are available, but I'm unsure how to add them.

JIRA will pull the role values from Administration >> System >> Roles

There you can define other project roles. If I remember correctly, you can only select the roles in the drop down you are assigned to in the related project(s).

You can also add groups to that dropdown if you change the value in

Administration >> System >> Comment visibility to Groups & Project Roles
