Set default field value for user picker field dynamically in JIRA

I would like to set default value of user picker field as a current user.

What I'm trying to do is to attach following behaviour to the field I want to initiate with default value:

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

def requestorField = getFieldByName('Requestor')

def currentUserName = ComponentManager.getInstance().getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().getName()

But it does not work for some reason.

Is there any way to do that? Maybe I'm doing something wrong in my script?

False alarm. Problem appeared to be with the behaviour mapping.

Just a guess - have you tried setting the field's value to User object instead of String, that is, remove the ".getName()" part?

already tried this. it didn't help

Hehe, i was stabbing in the dark anyway :) Glad you got it resolved

Second guess: replace single quotes with double quotes?

Andris, thanks for your prompt reaction. Issue has been resolved.

What you have should work - looks ok to me anyway... What version of jira, version of plugin?

sorry, it turned out to be related to behaviour mapping
