Did anyone tried updating a multi user picker field with members of a particular group using groovy post function (custom script)?
My use case : Upon issue creation i want my custom field CM Approvers (Multi user picker) to update automatically with setting the value to all members of a group "CM". Is this possible? If so, what would be the sample groovy code?
Also, if this is not possible using script runner, is there any other add-on through which we can implement this functionality ?
Many thanks !
You can definitely update a multi-user picker field with users from a group. In fact, I recently helped someone accomplish this in a different Community question. See here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Service-Desk-questions/Using-Scriptrunner-to-define-approvers-based-on-multiple-groups/qaq-p/664935#M8176
Your script might look something like this:
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def group = groupManager.getGroup("CM") // get the CM group
def usersInGroup = groupManager.getUsersInGroup(group) // get the users in that group
def fieldToSet = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("CM Approvers") // get the CM Approvers custom field
fieldToSet.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(fieldToSet), usersInGroup), new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()) // update CM Approvers with users
