Can you create a comment as part of a ScriptRunner Post Function that is owned by the system user?

We can write a Groovy Post Function script to post a comment to an issue based on some triggering event but the owner of the comment is the currently logged in user.

Is it possible to post that comment as a Jira "system" user (for example, "administrator")?

Is that a lot of work to accomplish?

Yes you can.  Change the dropdown so the script runs as the Scriptrunner Add-on user account

Thanks, @Randy Ho .

Since I can't find a "Scriptrunner Add-on" account in the User Manager, do you happen to know what the name of the account is?

Is it always there even if I can't find it in User Manager?

Also, do you happen to have a snippet of code to change to that user account?

Ah i missed that you're on server.  I believe you would use:



Pass the user you want to impersonate as the parameter of setLoggedInUser 

Just as a general rule you should avoid using an administrator account.  Setup an account with specific rights/access for the tasks you need to run with it.

Ah, got it.  Thanks, @Randy Ho .
