Hello @Jar Lady 

Are your trying to do this in Automation?  If so, can you tell what are you trying to do?

In DC edition, if 

{{issue.Additional Assignees}} gives me list of assignees,

I can get the size using and {{issue.Additional Assignees.size}} and,

I can access each an item using index like {{issue.Additional Assignees.get(0)}}, or

I can iterate the list using {{#issue.Additional Assignees}}{{name}}{{/}}, and

I can extract a value using lookup like below:

{{#issue.Additional Assignees}}{{#if(equals(name,"U657451"))}}{{displayName}}{{/}}{{/}}

If its Automation rule, maybe share what you are trying to do so community can pitch in.

Hope it helps.

I just need to retrieve each assignee. But accessing each item using {{issue.Additional Assignees.get(0)}} doesn't work. I'm using 8.20.10 Jira software.

Jar Lady April 4, 2024

does {{issue.Additional Assignees.get(0)}} work on custom field (configuring to use multi-user picker) and in jira 8.20.10?

oh sorry {{issue.Additional Assignees.get(0)}} works! some typo on my end. thank you so much!
