How to return the full author name for the last comment

Hi

I have been using the script runner to send out some automated emails to external clients when the issue is commented on. However I got a bit stuck with adding the Full name of the author of the last comment.

Using ${componentManager.getCommentManager().getComments(issue).last().author} in the email body I am able to return the code of the author of the last comment e.g. jsoap but I require the full name e.g. Joe Soap.

Is there a way to retrieve the full name?

Thanks

David

You should be able to just append .displayName to what you have already.

Thanks guys for the replies. No success yet with either options

It doesn’t seem that the ComponentAccessor class is used in script runner

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: ComponentAccessor for class: groovy.tmp.templates.GStringTemplateScript229

Similar issue it doesn’t recognise displayName when I tried the following

${componentManager.getCommentManager().getComments(issue).last().author.dispalyName}

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: dispalyName for class: java.lang.String)

Any other ideas? Is there a way for me to add the class/property to the underlying script.

No such property: dispalyName

hehe see where you are going with that, even with the Proper spelling I still get the same issue

Stack Trace:

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: displayName for class: java.lang.String
	at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.ScriptBytecodeAdapter.unwrap(ScriptBytecodeAdapter.java:50)

OK, use:

authorUser.displayName

Excellent. Thank you Jamie this works perfectly

Hi David,

You have to get the user from the author using userutils.

ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil().getUserObject(ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(CommentManager.class).getComments(issue).last().author).getDisplayName()

This is groovy syntax. May be this helps.
