script runner add group to user


I'm new to script runner. I would like to create a script that searches for all users without a group assigned, and assign the group jira-users.

I already found some lines of code to find all users without a group:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
result = ''
userUtil.getUsers().findAll{userUtil.getGroupsForUser(it.getName()).size() == 0}.each{ u ->
    result += + "\r\n"

but was not successful in adding the jira-users group


Thanks in advance

This is simple enough in itself, but you can just add jira-users to the list of groups automatically assigned to users when they first log in, in the directory config. Wouldn't that work?

No, unfortunately I need them assigned to the jira-users group before they log in first. We use a mail handler to create issues, so it can happen that a user is created via active directory and send a mail to cerate an issue. When this user is existing, but not assigned to jira-users, this will fail
