update group picker single value in post function of clone issue and links

i have post function in my workflow to clone issue and links on perticular transition.

below code works if custom field is not group picker single value:

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find {it.name == 'summary updated'}

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, 'hello')

when i try to updated single value group picker custom field it does not work:

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find {it.name == 'Assignment Group'}

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, UserManager.getGroup('my_group1'))

i tried below options:

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, GroupUtil.getGroup('my_group1'))

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, UserUtil.getGroup('my_group1'))

got the solution:

import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.Group

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()

Group watcherGroup = componentManager.getUserUtil().getGroup("test1")

List<Group> groupList = new ArrayList<Group>()

groupList.add(watcherGroup)

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find {it.name == 'Assignment Group'}

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, groupList)

Should this be able to be put under "Additional Issue Actions" if you use the 'create subtask' built in script?

Can this be used in the built in transition to create a subtask? Specifically in the "Additional Issue Actions"?

Yes it can be used

Weird, under 6.2.X it doesn't seem to function properly. If I add that code the 'create a subtask' post-transition fails.

Can this be used in the built in transition to create a subtask? Specifically in the "Additional Issue Actions"?
