Groovy to get the project roles for a user

Tom Lister Community Leader Oct 15, 2020


I would like to get hold of the roles a user is in within a groovy script

Has anyone done this? The equivalent of the Show User Roles action on the administer user page.

I've looked through the API's for ProjectRoleService and ProjectRoleManager but I'm not seeing a way to get what I want back.

If you want to do this you propably need something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project

String username = "username"
ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(username)
String prjkey = "projectkey"
Project project = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectByCurrentKey(prjkey)

ProjectRoleManager prjrolemgr = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectRoleManager)

Collection<ProjectRole> prjroles = prjrolemgr.getProjectRoles(user, project)

return prjroles
