User is not added to group via custom plugin code in JIRA


We have build a custom plugin for JIRA. We want to add user to group using JIRA API methods. Previously we were using JIRA v6.4.12 but now we have upgraded to JIRA v7.2.9.

The code we are using is-


UserManager userManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserManager.class);
dashboardUser = userManager.getUserByName(project.getLeadUserName());
GroupManager groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(GroupManager.class);
Group templateDashboardGroup = groupManager.getGroup(ServerConstant.TEMPLATE_GROUP);

UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserUtil.class); userUtil.addUserToGroup(templateDashboardGroup, dashboardUser); OR   GroupManager groupManager  = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(GroupManager .class); groupManager.addUserToGroup(dashboardUser, templateDashboardGroup);



After this I am checking if user is added successfully in group or not via-



Boolean b = groupManager.isUserInGroup(dashboardUser, templateDashboardGroup);

Here I am getting the result 'b' as false.

But when I am checking via UI in user management section, the user gets added to the group. Similarly on checking the database table, the user is added to the group.

Please help me find what exactly is the issue. If the user is getting reflected in the group on front-end and database table, why 'isUserInGroup' method is returning false.
