Can I get the issue reporter's email address using the groovy script?


I use the custom field in the script below to print the reporter group at the bottom of the Jira issue.

The script below is not my own, and I do not understand how it works, but it works.

And now I'd like to print the issue reporter's Jira account (or Email) at the bottom of the issue instead of just outputting a group of reporters.

As I expected, it would be possible to modify the script below, but I did not know what to do or what to look for.

Can someone help me?
It will help me a lot.

Thank you. :)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def reporter = issue.getReporter()
def groupList = groupManager.getGroupsForUser(reporter)

if (groupList == null || groupList.size() == 0) {
return null

def valid = groupList.findAll { group ->
return valid?valid[0].getName():null

Wow, I kept trying and I did what I wanted.

It works with the following two lines of script.
thank you! :)

def reporter = issue.getReporter()
return reporter.getName()
def reporter = issue.getReporter()
return reporter.getName()
