JMWE Post Function Conditional on User Group (cloud)

Hi team! 

I'm my trying (quite unsuccessfully) to execute a Conditional Post Function based on the reporter's "Group" which I have set here: Site Administration > User Management > Groups

  • Reporter's user Group = Analyst
  • Component/s = Acquisition

Can someone please help with how to construct the Nunjunks template?

{{ issue.fields.reporter | isInGroup("Analyst") }}

But I don't see what the Component/s field has to do with anything here...

Thank you David.  I thought I'd given this syntax a test run to no avail.  must not have.  cheers!

@David Fischer _Appfire_ - I am trying to accomplish the same thing, but I get this error. We are using server, not cloud.  

{{ issue.fields.reporter | isInGroup("Jira Portfolio Management Team") }}


Compilation error(s):
script15608722462601634036350.groovy: 1: Ambiguous expression could be either a parameterless closure expression or an isolated open code block;
   solution: Add an explicit closure parameter list, e.g. {it -> ...}, or force it to be treated as an open block by giving it a label, e.g. L:{...} @ line 1, column 1.
   {{ issue.fields.reporter | isInGroup("Jira Portfolio Management Team") }}

@SMAtlassianMber JMWE for Jira Server uses Groovy, not Nunjucks.

On Server, you want this:

 issue.get("reporter")?.isInGroup("Jira Portfolio Management Team")
Like David likes this


I'm on Server and want to execute a condition based on the name of a group or a role, please help.



Hi John,

the example right above your question is for Server.

What do you mean exactly by "want to execute a condition based on the name of a group or a role"? Do you need conditional execution of a post-function? Or a workflow Condition?

Hi David,

Thanks for responding!

I want to execute a post function to send an email to Slack upon "Create". The condition is only to allow a group of users. I can create this group or I can create a role and assign these users to it, which way is better?

Ex. So if the Reporter role is "Developers", can the script be as below?

issue.get("reporter") == "Developers"



Hi David,

Since the group is small enough, I was able to implement using the below condition:

issue.get("reporter") == "user id 1";"user id 2"...



I was able to get this to work instead 

Scripted (Groovy) Validator (JMWE add-on)' Validator

ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager().isUserInGroup(currentUser, "Jira Portfolio Management Team")

Thanks. It helped me
