Set Customfield based on Group Membership

I've a single list of our Departments as Customfield. When somebody creates a new ticket this customfield shoud be filled out automattily based on the group membership of the reporter. The name of the groups and the list are the same.

The groovy plugin should do this but i've no clue how.

If you need scripted field from groovy runner - see https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Scripted+Fields

As for the usage itself -

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def userId = issue.getReporterId();

def groups = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager().getGroupNamesForUser(userId);

def result = "";

for (def group: groups)

  result += result.length() > 0? ", " + group: group;

return result;

No a scripted field wouldn't work, it must be a group from that list
