How to update a custom field with a project role

Hello, I want to use your plugin to

a) get a member progragmatically from a role into a custom field

b) later assign the issue to the user in the custom field

The role is an own created with only one single Person who should get the ticket in the end. Step b seems easy but I don't get a working.

I tried use post function with: (carefully it's translated from german) "set custom fiel with Content"..
b) first param I selected my field to set
c) second param is my Problem. I want  to get the one Person from my role xxx (per Project). Is there a makro like:

'%%CURRENT_USER%% for role or an Option?

Thanks for help!

I would suggest to use Script Runner in the post function to fetch the user from the role and then use script to update custom field value with the username

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUsers
def projectRoleManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectRoleManager)
def projectRoleId = 10500  // ID of Automatic Watcher project role
def role = projectRoleManager.getProjectRole(projectRoleId)
def actors = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoleActors(role, issue.projectObject)
def usersInRole = actors.getApplicationUsers();

Now update the custom field value as discussed many times in the forumn -
