Send email notification to users in a certain group

Hi guys,

I am trying to filter some issues and send mails to the users from a group.

The thing is I could not manage to get the users from a certain group.

I used com.opensymphony.user.UserManager class but this was only for JIRA v4 and I am using JIRA v5.2.4.

Any ideea what class should I use in JIRA5?

This is what I have so far:

"<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.enterprise.JiraTagLib" xmlns:core="jelly:core" xmlns:email="jelly:email" xmlns:log="jelly:log" xmlns:util="jelly:util">

<!-- Run the SearchRequestFilter -->

<jira:RunSearchRequest filterid="17280" var="issues" />

<!-- Iterate through the found issues -->

<core:forEach var="issue" items="${issues}">

<log:warn>Sending notifications for critical unassign issue ${issue.key}</log:warn>

<!-- Get Users from test group to send notification -->

     <core:invokeStatic className="com.opensymphony.user.UserManager" method="getInstance" var="instance"/>

         <core:invoke on="${instance}" method="getGroup" var="grp">

             <core:arg type="java.lang.String" value="test"/>


         <core:invoke on="${grp}" method="getUsers" var="users"/>

<!-- Send notification to each user in infrastructure group -->

<core:forEach var="user" items="${users}">

<email:email server="" from="jira <at>" to="${user} <at>" subject="[JIRA] Critical Unassign: ${issue.key}">

            [${issue.key}?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

            REMINDER: ${issue.key} with priority 0 is unassign for more than an hour   




                 Key: ${issue.key}


            Reporter: ${issue.reporter}

            Assignee: ${issue.assignee}

You need to get hold of the GroupManager. The script shown below will print the email addresses of users in the jira-users group into the log:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.JiraTagLib" xmlns:core="jelly:core" xmlns:log="jelly:log">
<jira:LoadManager var="groupManager" manager="GroupManager"/>

<core:invoke on="${groupManager}" method="getUsersInGroup" var="users">
<core:arg type="java.lang.String" value="jira-users"/>

<core:forEach var="user" items="${users}">
<log:warn>User = ${user.emailAddress}</log:warn>

Thanks for this one, helped me out :)
