Verify Assignee's Group in JMWE Validator

Hi There, 


I know there's a way to verify the user's group in JMWE via the following expression:

user.groups.includes("group name")

However, I met the scenario that needs to verify the assignee's group. Any advice on the expression?

Hi @Olive Sun ,

you can do this:

issue.assignee && issue.assignee.groups.includes("group name")

It's important to first test whether issue.assignee is null, otherwise you'll get an error accessing its groups when it is.

Thanks, @David Fischer _Appfire_ !That works perfectly.

Hi @David Fischer _Appfire_, would you mind also share the way to verify whether the assignee is in the specific project role or not?

Not sure if the following expression is correct.


issue.assignee && issue.assignee.getProjectRoles(issue.project).some(pr => == "Developers")


@Olive Sun it is (assuming you're looking for the Developers project role)

Hi @David Fischer _Appfire_ , I tried that expression, it only works when I set with "==":

issue.assignee && issue.assignee.getProjectRoles(issue.project).some(pr => == "Developers")

If I set with "!=" as follows, it doesn't work and keeps return "True".

issue.assignee && issue.assignee.getProjectRoles(issue.project).some(pr => != "Developers")

 Any thoughts?




Hi @Olive Sun 

why would you use != ? You mean for a different requirement? What would be the requirement then?


Hi @David Fischer _Appfire_ , for one transition, I want to make the condition as the user is in project Role A, and for the other transition, I want to make the condition opposite wat. This means the user is not in project Role A. 


That's why I want to use !=, any thoughts?

Hi @Olive Sun ,

that would be:

issue.assignee && !issue.assignee.getProjectRoles(issue.project).some(pr => == "Developers")

Thank yoooooou!
