Set issue reporter via groovy script

Hi folks,

maybe a stupid question, but i don´t find what i´m doing wrong here:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
issue.reporterId = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

This is a groovy scripted post function to change a cloned issues´ reporter to the current user (instead of the reporter of the to be cloned issue), after changing from componentManager to ComponentAccessor this is in general working.

But, while testing it it looks a bit weird:

You see, the assignee was cloned and the correct name was set, but the reporter was somehow changed to the username instead. Tried to find a solution by myself but without success... sad

 

Many thanks!

Your assigning an com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser object in JIRA 7 or a com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User object in JIRA 6 to the reported id. 

The reported id should be the username. So you need:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
issue.reporterId = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser().name

Hi Adam,

thanks, is working as expected! Seems that i "only" missed the ...getLoggedInUser().name

Just for other users, this was tested with JIRA 7.1.7 and ScriptRunner 4.3.13...
