post function for Set field value KO Edited


I need every jira created to have a SECURITY LEVEL set by default.

So I added a post function to Set field value (JMWE app) which seems exactly what I need.

I gave a field value which is NTG users only (that already exist on my security level settins) but it fails each time I create a new issue. I do not get where I am wrong. 

I receive an error report (thought JMWE) which is 

'Incorrect request: {"security":"Security level name 'NTG users only' is not valid"}' but in my Project issue security it exists and I copied/pasted it to be sure I do not make any mistake.

Can someone help me please? Thanks

Hi @Carolina SILVA ,

unless you use the "Run as" feature of the Set FIeld Value post-function, the post-function will run as the "add-on user" (Jira Misc Workflow Extensions), therefore that user must be added to the "NTG users only" security level. In fact, any security level should always include the "atlassian-addons-project-access" project role, which automatically includes all add-on users.

The post-function can only see security levels it belongs to.

Helo @David Fischer _Innovalog_ thanks a lot, it works now.

Hi @Carolina SILVA ,

I'm glad it worked. Can you please "Accept" the answer so that other members can find it in the future?
