Thanks for all help and support. I caold finally complete my code and its working fine.

Thank You,


Try var myObject = AJS.$(objectToTransform). If this doesn't help you please show your source code and we will find a solution.

jQuery(document).ready(function() {

var abcd= [10];


var abcd=getGroups("asif_khan");
for (var i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
//var a= abcd[i]data.groups.items;

//varb= abcd.groups;


if(project_name == 'Customer ')

//window.alert('Message goes here');


function getGroups(user)
var groups;
url: "/rest/api/2/user?username="+user+"&expand=groups",
type: 'get',
dataType: 'json',
async: false,
success: function(data) {
groups = data.groups.items;
return groups;

This the the code iam using.

PLease make the required changes in the code if you can.That will be very helpfull.

I tried with the method you provided, but didnot work.Please try that method too if possible.

Thanks alot,
