Set assignee based on created time and timezone

Hi all,

I have a post-function script that I worked on from a previous post that assigns users upon issue creation in round robin fashion (based on the most recently created issue that's of a certain issue type and has an assignee). The script is as follows:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.UpdateIssueRequest

import java.sql.Timestamp

// The role you want assignees to set from
final roleName = 'Utility'
final originalAssigneeCustomFieldName = "customfield_20511"

// If it is true, the assigned issues will be reassigned
final reassignedIssues = true

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.issueManager
def projectRoleManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectRoleManager)
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def originalAssigneeCustomField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(originalAssigneeCustomFieldName)

// Get all of the users associated with the specified project role
def projectRole = projectRoleManager.getProjectRole(roleName)

// Sort the users of the project role using the user key
def users = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoleActors(projectRole, issue.projectObject)
.toSorted { it.key }

// There are no users in the specific project role
if (!users) { ("No users for project role $roleName")

if (!reassignedIssues && issue.assignee) { ('The issue is already assigned')

// Find the latest created issue id that: 1) Is a 'Defect' and 2) Has an assignee
def lastIssueIdWithAssignee = issueManager.getIssueIdsForProject(
.find {
def foundIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(it)
return foundIssue.assignee && == "Defect"

// If no issue fulfilling above criteria is found, new issue is assigned to the first user in rr queue
if (!lastIssueIdWithAssignee) {
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
originalAssigneeCustomField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(null, users.first()), changeHolder)

// If issue is found, then assignee is based on the Original Assignee and Assignee fields:
// * assuming Original Assignee field is not empty, user in said field is taken, and issue assigns to
//the next user in queue
def lastIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(lastIssueIdWithAssignee)

def lastAssignee = lastIssue.getCustomFieldValue(originalAssigneeCustomField) ?: lastIssue.assignee
def lastAssigneeIndex = users.indexOf(lastAssignee)
def nextAssignee = users[(lastAssigneeIndex + 1) % users.size()]

def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
originalAssigneeCustomField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(null, nextAssignee), changeHolder)

I had extensive help on this script and it works completely as expected, no problem with it at all...but there's something I want to add and I'm not sure how to do it.

I want this script to only take effect in between 4AM - 4PM UTC.

How would I go about adding that condition?

You could try with something like this


//your original imports here
import java.time.ZoneOffset
def utcHour = new Date().toInstant().atOffset( ZoneOffset.ofTotalSeconds(0)).hour
if(utcHour >=4 && utcHour < 16){
//the rest of your script here

Or reverse the logic and return early, rather than having a lot of code in an if block, i.e.

if(utcHour < 4 || utcHour >=16)

@Peter-Dave Sheehan 

Works as expected. Thanks once again!


And @Payne thanks for your suggestion too! Works just as well.
