Question about scriptrrunner User scripted field

I am using a scripted field to show in a subtask its parent's assignee. I have:

return (parent?.assignee == null ? null : ApplicationUsers.from(parent.getAssignee() as User) as ApplicationUser)

and the template is User Picker.

However the field is show in the General tab of the issue, not in the People tab, without the link.

This is version 2.1.16 in JIRA 6.1.5

Any hints?

I don't think the feature for showing the field in the correct section depending on the template was in that old version...

Upgrade it is. Thanks.

could you try this?

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserManager)

issue.parentObject?.assignee == null ? null : userManager.getUserByName(issue.parentObject.assignee?.name)

It keeps showing the name in the General tab. I understand that in order to appear in the People tab the custom field must implement an interface. Thanks.

I forgot to mention that I tested the code against the latest versions of Jira and SR, so the issue might be related with the older versions your instance is running. What do you mean by "must implement an interface"?

I am using a Participants CF from Jira Toolkit, and this works OK in my version of JIRA, this field is shown in the People tab: Note the line: ApplicationUser assignee = userConverter.getUserFromDbString(issue.getAssigneeId());
