Groovy Runner ->How to ask if current user belongs to a certain group ?

I am using the following template:

Send an email based on the provided template if conditions are met
Loaded from: bundle://110.0:1/com/onresolve/jira/groovy/canned/workflow/postfunctions/SendCustomEmail.groovy (View Source)

I want to make a post condition in case the user initiated the issue belongs to a certain group.

In previous version it used to work by:


Now it is not working and throwing this error when I run it in Script runner:
javax.script.ScriptException: java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot get property 'groups' on null object

Why ?

thanks, Tomer.

That suggests to me the person doing the action is not logged in?

But the condition you want is:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil()
currentUser && userUtil.getGroupNamesForUser("ServiceCenter")

The first bit checks the current user is not null, ie anonymous user.
