I'm trying to fill in certain fields (like Product Manager, Dev lead, QA lead, etc.) when an issue is created. These values would probably be derived from project roles. How can I do this?
As I know there is no exact solution for that issue (+ you should define what to do if there is more than one user inside project role), so the easiest way is to implement the logic as a postfunction using script runner. see https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Post+Functions for details.
Thanks for the response. We have this installed already and this would probably be the best way forward.
Handling multiple people in a role is a good reason to script it so we can handle exceptions with ease.
To be specific, do you know how I can (1) change in custom fields and (2) access the project Roles via script.
1. If you are doing that in postfunction - something like
String customFieldName = "customfield_11112"; CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(customFieldName); issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf,value);
2. refer to
You've given me the right answer so I've marked the question as answered so you can have your karma (whats the Reddit to Atlassian karma conversion ratio??) but I had two more questions.
How would I access the component lead and utilize this information in Script Runner?
Is there documentation on how to access this data?
1. You can use https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/latest/com/atlassian/jira/bc/project/component/ProjectComponentManager.html#find(java.lang.Long) to get project component by id, https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/latest/com/atlassian/jira/bc/project/component/ProjectComponent.html - from project component itself you can find lead
2. I use https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Plugin+Guide and https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/latest/ for jira + google search
