Groovy Script to add User to JIRA group

Hi There!


I'm searching for a solution that provides me an opportunity to add the user from Custom Field to specific JIRA Group by the post-function workflow.

Thank You in advance,

You need to read the value from the custom field and do something like this. <read user from custom field> depends on the type of your custom field

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

def user = <read user from custom field>
def group = groupManager.getGroup("Group1") groupManager.addUserToGroup(user,group)

@Alexey Matveev wow, thank you for prompt answer!
On more question: could you provide a more detailed example of this row:

def user = <read user from custom field>

What is your custom field type for the user?

@Alexey Matveev is the User Picker (single user)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def user = (ApplicationUser) ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("test_mav_user_picker").getValue(issue)

def group = groupManager.getGroup("group1")

groupManager.addUserToGroup(user,group)

@Alexey Matveev perfect! Many-many thanks!
