Assign jira to user based on issue Type

I am new to script runner. I want to assign jira to user based on issue type using script runner groovy script.

I have written following code:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

if (issue.getIssueType() == "Task") {

MutableIssue myIssue = issue

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()

UserManager userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

def reviewer = userManager.getUser("xyz")



The error i get is:
javax.script.ScriptException: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: issue for class
Not sure how to fix this. I ran this through script console as well as a post function during transition from create --> open.

With out a Script Runner also you handle your requirement.


Have Different Workflow for Different IssueType & in the postfunction assign it to the required User.

Also in case if you want to make Project Specific, then you can use Project Role for storing User (i.e who has to be Assignee)
