How can I use a simple script to validate if all users in a selected list are in a group?

A more desirable option would be to have the picker only present people from a specific group in the select list, but given this option is not available I need to validate the list of users that were selected to ensure they are all in a specific group. The following code doesn't work, but I hope it conveys what I'm trying to accomplish.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def checkfield = customfieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("name of custom field");

boolean flag=true;



flag = groupManager.isUserInGroup(checkfield[i].name, 'group_name');






return flag
