Bitbucket detecting permission change with ScripRunner

Bertrand Delaitre March 12, 2021

Hi all,

I'm a totally newbie in the use of ScriptRunner and Groovy. Here is what I need to do: detect any modification (add, modify, delete) in the permissions for any project, and send a mail to a specific address when a modification is detected, including :

  • project key,
  • current user name (the one who makes the modification),
  • new permission (if any),
  • old permission (if any),
  • affected user name


I'm quite sure this is possible using kind of ProjectPermissionModifiedEvent event but I'm not able to define the needed script(s) by myself.


Any help is welcome

Hi Bertrand

Yes, 'ProjectPermissionModifiedEvent' is the correct event type.

We have updated our documentation page with an example for project permission modifications :

You can access the event info you need as :

  • Affected user name : event.affectedUser.displayName
  • User who changed the permission : event.user.displayName
  • Project key : event.project.key
  • Previous project permission : event.oldValue
  • New project permission : event.newValue

Please let us know if you'd like further help!
