We'd like to, based initially on what is the default value of the Reporter field and subsequently if it's changed to something else, take that username and do a lookup for the user's full display name, mangle it, and based off that value set the value in a different selection list. This would be done on the Create Issue screen.
The user's full display name is formatted like: "Company Name: User Name". By mangling it I mean doing some sort of substring operation to grab everything before the ":".
I've looked at some jelly example code, the database values plugin, etc and have been having a hard time coming up with exactly what we want. Any ideas?
If i have understood your question correctly
You will have to write a groovy script(add it as a server side script on the field) which will check if this field(Reporter) is changed , if it is changed then get the value of this field , apply some logic to grab everything before the ":".
then set this value to some other selection list
