ScriptRunner: Displaying Usernames as Emails but string is comma spliced

Hey all,

I recently found this script online that I have modified a bit and am using to return email address for users inside a scripted field. The only issue is, the returned string has each individual character separated by a comma and I can't seem to find a way to fix this online.

Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 4.25.18 PM.pngAdditionally, the script seems to run despite the errors on the side. The script is below.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def uxfield = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("UX")
if (uxfield == null)
    return "custom field not found"

StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder();
for(ApplicationUser user: (ArrayList<ApplicationUser>) uxfield.getValue(issue))
    result.append(user.getEmailAddress() + "/")

return result.toString().substring(0, result.toString().length() -1)

Happy to help but please, instead of pasting code you found on the web, can you please describe the use-case? Secondly, can you let us know what type you plan to return? We can't see the searcher you set on the field and we can't see the template you configured.

Sure. I am using it to convert usernames from one field to display their email addresses for reporting purposes in the scripted field. The searcher is set for a multi-user picker field.
