Set assignee based on custom field value

Hi

 

I want to add a postfunction script that sets the assignee based on a custom fields value.

So for example when field 'Product' (Select List Single Choice) a has value 'Cloud' then it should be assigned to person 'gwll' user name. If it's value 'Server' then it should be person 'Johnl' user name. We do have scriptrunner, can anybody tell me how the script should look to enable this?

I tried the following script but it set the assignee value on issue as unassignee 

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

String userName;

switch(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Product").toString()){
case "Cloud": userName = "gwll";break;
case "Server": userName = "Johnl";break;

}

issue.setAssignee(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(userName))

 

Jira - 7.2.7

ScriptRunner - 5.2.1

 

thanks for your help

log.error(userName)
log.error(issue.getCustomFieldValue(csProduct));

Hi Alexey

Hi @Alexey Matveev

I'm using a similar post function:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

MutableIssue issue = issue;
String userName;
def areaRiferimento = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Area di riferimento")
switch(issue.getCustomFieldValue(areaRiferimento)){
    case "Qualità": userName = "mfaedda";break;
    case "Sicurezza": userName = "acubeddu";break;

}

issue.setAssignee(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(userName))

 

But the inline script return me an error: "Cannot find matching method"

What I am missing?

Thank you so much.

What is your jira version?

Try like this

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUsers

MutableIssue issue = issue;
String userName;
def areaRiferimento = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Area di riferimento")
switch(issue.getCustomFieldValue(areaRiferimento)){
    case "Qualità": userName = "mfaedda";break;
    case "Sicurezza": userName = "acubeddu";break;

}

issue.setAssignee(ApplicationUsers.from(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(userName)))

Sorry, also this does not work. I will work again on it after the jira update.

hi,

i've also an issue with implementing this, i am using the following script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

String userName;

switch(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Division").toString()){

    case "AB": userName = "Tom";break;

    case "CD": userName = "Tom";break;

    case "EF": userName = "Steven";break;   

    case "GH": userName = "Steven";break;

}

issue.setAssignee(ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(userName))

I made a custom field (Radiobutton) and added to some screens, how should this work?

We have scriptrunner but i cant't choose for radiobutton? Is there any advice?

 

thx!
