Web Item Provider with recent projects?


similarly as in the provided example:

I wanted to build a web item with my recent projects from specific category.

Is there a simple method to make that work?

This is not particularly easy so I'll give a full example.

First, add a Raw XML Module to create the web section in the Projects dropdown:

<web-section key='recent-proj-cat-projects' name='ScriptRunner generated web item - active-issues' location='browse_link' weight='70'>
  <label>Recent CAT1 Projects</label>
  <param name='lazy' value='true' />

Modify the label as appropriate.

Now create a new web item provider:

The code for the provider can be found here: https://gist.github.com/jechlin/cf096c1da6ad5b5e44a8a803bd6fcaa5

And results in:

This should be very similar to the provided examples, except you want to get the project history and filter on the category. Something like:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.UserProjectHistoryManager

def historyManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserProjectHistoryManager)
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.projectManager

if (user) {
    def historyItems = historyManager.getProjectHistoryWithoutPermissionChecks(user)
    historyItems.findAll {
        projectManager.getProjectObj(it.entityId as Long).projectCategory?.name = "CAT1"
    .each {
        // create web item

I didn't bother with error checking to keep the example simple...

Also retrieving the project to get the category may not be fast enough, you'll need to check.
