How do i transition an issue automatically based on usergroup?

We have a scrumproject where we want have issues on a kanban board first, where they can be reviewed by the PO or be set to low priority. After the PO has reviewed them they can be transferred to "open" and they will appear on the regular backlog.

This works like a charm and i can recommend it to anyone. But the PO would like one small change, when the scrumteam themselves (let's call them team test) create an issue (so no external users) they would like it to start in the "open" status, no review by PO necessary. I can automatically transition it based on a groovy script but how would i write such a script? that if the reporter is a member of team test it will automatically transition to "open"?


Thanks in advance!

In Script Runner plugin there is a built-in post function script called

"Fast Track transition an issue" you can use that to transition an issue to open and configure a "condition" in groovy in that post-function that reporter belongs to a particular group

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.reporter?.name, 'test')

That looks good, where in this script should i fill out the name of the group?

Is it where now 'business users' is typed?
