How get access to ldap custom field value

Nova Squad July 15, 2021

I'm using ScriptRunner with an ldap multi picker custom field.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator

def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey('Test-22')

def Groups = CustomFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_23702")
def GroupsValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(Groups)

return GroupsValue

The return I get from this is in the format

[CN=Group Name,OU=Groups,OU=Teams, CN=Group2 Name,OU=Groups,OU=Teams]

However when the custom field is displayed in Jira it just shows Group Name, Group Name 2

How can I retrieve just the displayed format names instead of the full base dn?

Hey, @Nova Squad! To get just the displayed format names like you'd see on the issue view, you can use the com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.OrderableField#getViewHtml method like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey('JRA-1')
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def fieldLayoutManager = ComponentAccessor.fieldLayoutManager
def groupsField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10035")
def fieldLayoutItem = fieldLayoutManager.getFieldLayout(issue).fieldLayoutItems.find { ==

def displayHtml = groupsField.getViewHtml(fieldLayoutItem, null, issue)
return displayHtml.trim()

The call to trim there at the end is to strip off any surrounding whitespace like newlines or spaces.
