I've created a custom field and I would like it to be set automatically to a User's Group by who reported the issue, so that if I'm a reporter in fx jira-developer group, the custom field is set automatically to jira-developer group when I report an issue. I need this cause I would like to be able to get a pie chart of what group is reporting the most / fewest issues.
I've tried the plugin Dynamic Forms but it didn't quite do the trick.
If you have the Script Runner plugin installed, then you could try having a Scripted Field which will display the Reporter's group.
In your scripted field, you would need a groovy script like this:
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager import com.atlassian.jira.user.util import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance() def userUtil = componentManager.getUserUtil() def Reporter = issue.getReporter().getDisplayName(); GroupList = userUtil.getGroupsForUser(Reporter); return GroupList.getName();
That code would just display one group. You'd have to modify it to display more groups.
I'm getting error when I try to run the script - something you can help with?
org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed: Script7.groovy: 2: unable to resolve class com.atlassian.jira.user.util @ line 2, column 1. import com.atlassian.jira.user.util ^ 1 error
This is interesting. Do you have just one group for each user? If not, then how do you plan to sort out which group exactly should be in the custom field. I have not done it, but I think a workaround is possible using Jira Suite Utilities and configure a post function to copy values.
