Using ScriptRunner to Assign Approver based on Amount Value

Custom Field : Amount

If Amount >= $1000 Then Approver = John

If Amount < $1000 Then Approver = Jill

Trying to get this into my workflow.  Any suggestions?

Hi Michael,

Assuming your 'Amount' field ID is 11111 and your 'Approver' field ID is 22222, your script should look something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def usrMgr = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def cfMgr = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def amount = cfMgr.getCustomFieldObject(11111.toLong())
def approver = cfMgr.getCustomFieldObject(22222.toLong())
def userJohn = usrMgr.getUserByName("John's user name")
def userJill = usrMgr.getUserByName("Jill's user name")

if (issue.getCustomFieldValue(amount) >= 1000){
issue.setCustomFieldValue(approver, userJohn)
}else if (issue.getCustomFieldValue(amount) < 1000){
issue.setCustomFieldValue(approver, userJill)

Is there documentation somewhere on how I should properly test this?  Can I do it from the ScriptRunner console or do I have to do it from an actual issue?

 In my instance I have a test project to play around with safely.

I suppose you can also do it in ScriptRunner console on a dummy issue, but you'll need to declare your 'issue' variable for that:

def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject("test issue key")

I'm sorry Approver = the built-in Jira assignee field

then use this:


Gives me unable to resolve class com.atlassian.jira.component.componentAccessor.

I am using Jira Cloud if that matters.

it should be exactly like this (case sensitive):

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

It is exactly like that.
