Groovy Condition - User (assignee) NOT in group

Hi there.

I'm looking for a way to set the condition "assignee is not in group"

I ended up with something like this, but I don't know if that is the right wat to do it:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
!(groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'groupname'))

EDIT:

and working code for checking if assignee is not in any of groups:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

!(
(groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'groupnameA'))
||
(groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'groupnameB'))
)

It's hard to read that without adding the proper code formatting.

Your code looks ok. It could be written more idiomatically, but looks like it will work.

I might rewrite the last line like so:

! ['groupA', 'groupB'].any {groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, it)}

Thanks for the help. I added the code and it works like a charm :)

no worries... small suggestion above (untested).

Cool, looks far better and clean :)

Hi Blazej,

Haven't tried this but since it is groovy I am pretty sure you could do something like this.

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
if(groupManager.getGroupNamesForUser(issue.assignee).contains("Administrator"))

Let me know if this worked for you.

But isn't this the code fo checking if user IS in group? I were looking for something exactly opposite :)

Looks fine to me. Are you saying it doesn't work?

No no, I was just not sure if I placed "!" properly and afraid if it won't corrupt anything :)

Thanks for the opinion, I can now go and test it out :)

Damn, Script Runner condition won't allow me to group conditions. Can I use such structure to check if user is not in ANY fo the groups?:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

!((groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'groupnameA'))||(groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.assignee?.name, 'groupnameB')))

Please, forgive me such noobish questions, I simply don't know groovy nor java, so I'm kinda like blindman trying to complete sudoku :)

I am new to use Groovy Scrip Runner. I want to implement 'User Not In Group' condition.

Please tell we how can I create custom condition that can be applyed on any workflow transition and that can work similer to the in built condition 'User Is In Group'
