JMWE event based actions to set a field base on user

Good morning!!


I am trying to create an event base using JMWE to set a field in jira only if the reporter is not in a Group  (o could be role also) 


I found the IsInRole/ IsinGroup function but it is not what I want to compare.

Can anybody help me please?


Thanks in advance

Hi @Rosana Casilli ,

I'm not sure I understand your requirements. Why are the isInRole / isInGroup filters not what you need? Can you please describe your need in more details?

Hi @David Fischer _Appfire_ I want to check that the user is not in a particular role, or is not in a particular group but the function evaluate that "isinrole" or "isingroup" 


for example:

user creates an issue 

if the user does not have the role "X" then set field label with a value "XX"

Got it. Then what you're looking for is:

{{ not ( currentUser | isInGroup("administrators") ) }}

and I would extend the above code to something like:

{{ not (currentUser | isInRole ( "Administrators")) and not (currentUser | isInGroup ( "Administrators"))}}

Thank you both!!

I tested this expression 

{{ not ( issue.fields.reporter | isInRole("QA Team") ) }} but it returns always true not matter if  the reporter has that role or not... 

The isInRole filter also needs to know in which project to check the role membership - check the online help for it in the Nunjucks filters help tab
