How to fire an event using Script Runner when custom multi user field gets updated?


I want to fire an event using Script Runner when a custom multi user field is changed. The users in this field should get a notification after the change of the field. What is the correct condition to fire the event? In the best case only newly added users to the custom field will be notified.

Thanks in advance

Hi Thorsten,

In such a case you could use event.eventTypeId:

import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventType
if (event.eventTypeId == EventType.ISSUE_CREATED_ID) {
} else if (event.eventTypeId == EventType.ISSUE_UPDATED_ID) {
    changeItems.any { it.field=='my multi user field' }

Hope that helps

Hi Alejo,


thank you very much. It works.

But in the case I create the issue it doesn't work. I selected both events issue created and issue updated. But I think that the condition is not true because only the update case is covered. Can I change the condition so that also the create case is covered?


Best Regards
