How to set a single user picker cf via nunjucks?

We set some CFs via JMWE post actions, in general it´s working fine. But for a single user picker CF we got some problems, although logs do not contain anything.

From a functional perspective we want to check the reporter, and based on this value we want to set the field "Supervisor" with another user.

{% set reporter = issue.fields.reporter.name %}
{% set supervisor = issue.fields.Supervisor.name %}
   
        {% if reporter == hhunfeld %}
            {% set supervisor = mkallage %}
		{% elif reporter == mfichtner %}
			{% set supervisor = mkallage %}	
		{% elif reporter == bbruese %}
			{% set supervisor = hhunfeld %}
		{% elif reporter == dnienaber %}
			{% set supervisor = hhunfeld %}
		{% elif reporter == upaucker %}
			{% set supervisor = hhunfeld %}
  
		{% else %}
			{% set supervisor = mkallage %}
        {%endif%}

Tried also with issue.fields.Supervisor.displayName, but also no success. What is wrong here, i´m no coder so it would be great if anybody can jump in and help me a bit...

Many thanks,

Hans-Hermann

Hi Hans-Hermann,

you need to enclose string constants in double quotes (e.g. "hhunfeld") in your "if" and "set" statements. You also need to eventually print a value out. Try:

{% set reporter = issue.fields.reporter.name %}

        {% if reporter == "hhunfeld" %}
            {% set supervisor = "mkallage" %}
        {% elif reporter == "mfichtner" %}
            {% set supervisor = "mkallage" %}
        {% elif reporter == "bbruese" %}
            {% set supervisor = "hhunfeld" %}
        {% elif reporter == "dnienaber" %}
            {% set supervisor = "hhunfeld" %}
        {% elif reporter == "upaucker" %}
            {% set supervisor = "hhunfeld" %}
        {% else %}
            {% set supervisor = "mkallage" %}
        {%endif%}
{{ supervisor }}

Note that there is also a shorter way:

{% set reporter = issue.fields.reporter.name %}

        {% if reporter == "hhunfeld" %}
            mkallage
        {% elif reporter == "mfichtner" %}
            mkallage
        {% elif reporter == "bbruese" %}
            hhunfeld
        {% elif reporter == "dnienaber" %}
            hhunfeld
        {% elif reporter == "upaucker" %}
            hhunfeld
        {% else %}
            mkallage
        {% endif %}

Hey David,

many thanks, your quick reply is working as expected!

Damn, it should have noticed this by myself as well... sad

You're welcome.

I modified my reply, you don't need the "Ignore empty value" since you have an "else" statement. But if you wanted to leave the existing value of the Supervisor field untouched when the reporter didn't match any of your "if" statements, you would simply remove the "else" and check the "Ignore empty value" option.
