Can I populate a select list or user picker field with a user group using a workflow property?

I would like to populate either a single select list or user picker field with ONLY the members of a specified group which would be pulled from the project roles section of a project. Is this possible using a workflow property, or is a script necessary?

You could try it with a lot of code.

Or just set the context for a user picker field and use the built in "only show people from group/role(s)" function (it's a more recent function, so you need to be on quite a recent JIRA to have it)

we are on Jira 6.3.15 - but I cannot find this function, would you be so kind and explain how to find this new function?

Custom fields -> the field -> configure will take you to the context list. Find the context you're interested in (there's often only a single one), and it's in there
