How to assign to a project role using a post function?

Hi- I'm currently trying to script a post-function to assign an issue to a member of a role, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about this. Is this something that can be done easily with Script Runner?

Hey Mathew,

Please have a look at JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions:

It's paid add-on from version 2.5.7. Surely you may do it via scripted post-function using Jamie's answer from thread:

Then get user from role in issues project, and assigning him/her to issue.


There is an "Assign to role member" built-in script in the plugin since a few months ago... did you try to use that?

Great feature. Helped me a lot

There can be multiple users in a project role and issue can be assigned to a single user .You can notify a project role on issue events .
