move multiple users from different project roles in a project to one certain project role at once

Hi all,

is it possible to move all users of a certain project to one special project role at once? We are archiving projects by changing the category to "outdated". The outdated projects should now have read only access for all current users of this project.

We are running JIRA 4.4.4

Best regards,

you can try with the JellyScript

to get project roles memebers from project you have to use jira:GetProjectRoleActors

to add memebers to project role you have to use jira:AddActorsToProjectRole

something like follows

<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.JiraTagLib" xmlns:core="jelly:core">
    <jira:GetProjectRoleActors projectkey="MKY" projectroleid="1" var="roleactors" >
        <core:forEach var="actor" items="${roleactors.users}">
		<jira:AddActorsToProjectRole projectroleid="1" actors="${}"
        projectkey="MKY" actortype="atlassian-group-role-actor" />
