Can the Simple Scripted Validator be used to allow only users in a specific project role to create an issue?

Good day.

I am a jira-administrator and have a project that has four issuetypes.  Three of the issueypes may be created by jira-users, who have been granted Create permissions in the project's Permission Scheme.  However, the fourth issuetype needs to limit the reporter to the member of a project role group (e.g., Generic Role 4).  Can the Simple Scripted Validator be used for this purpose?  If so, what would the script look like?

I am aware of the following sample script, but I believe it is only for JIRA instance groups.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.reporter?.name, 'business-users')


We are using Script Runner v3.0.16.


Many thanks for your assistance!

Hi Jeff,

I think in your case you can use the projectRoleManager, it should be something like this 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def user = userManager.getUserByName(issue.reporter?.name)
def projectRoleManager = (ProjectRoleManager) ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(ProjectRoleManager.class);
// name of role here
def devsRole = projectRoleManager.getProjectRole("Developers")
return projectRoleManager.isUserInProjectRole(user, devsRole, issue.getProjectObject())

Hope this helps. 

Hi, I need the same script but with two Project Roles. How I do? Thanks
