Bulk create security levels for a project

Hi All,


Is there any way to bulk create security levels for a project, through some automated scripts.

I have around 180 groups which I managed to create through CLI plugin scripts, now I need to create security level for each group.

Is there a way to automate it?

Thanks in Advance!!

Hi Aditya,


There is a current feature request that you can find at JRASERVER-64636.  In the meantime there is a workaround you can try:


Perform Bulk edit to change the security level of the issue that has been imported using CSV import

Please vote on JRASERVER-64636 to add impact and be notified when/if this is implemented in JIRA natively.



Thanks @Branden McElveen,


I was able to achieve this by writing a small SIL Script in Post function to set Security Level based on Reporter's group and then importing/creating issues from CSV.
