How can I copy Project Role Members to my 'Approvers' multi-user picker custom field (for JSD)?

I am utilizing JSD Approval functionality and have setup a muli-user picker custom field to manage approvers. I want this to be preset and dynamic based on the project using a post function. What's the best way to copy the contents of a Project Role into my custom field? Any custom scripts out there for ScriptRunner?

This is non-trivial. IIRC I've done this before. The way to do it is create a normal multi user picker field.

Then in the behaviour initialiser you specify where it gets its suggestions from, which is a rest endpoint, namely: /rest/api/1.0/users/picker. This lets you provide parameters to specify the project and role to get suggestions from.

Having trouble setting it up though. I can give you more information if you want to go this route.

Hello Jamie,

I would to implement the similar functionality in one of our JIRA project where multiple workflows are configured.


I want to copy the list of users present in specific project role to the specific user field.


It would be really helpful if you can provide us the script for the same. Or point me out where I can get it.


Thank you in advance.
