How to get the addresee user in a Send Email built-in Script Runner script?

I have set up a Send Custom Email script to send emails to a list of users contained in a custom multiple user field.

I would like to add a personalised greeting at the beginning of the email with the name of the user the email is sent to. To do this, I need access the user to whom the current email is sent.

Any hint?

Hi Roberto, 

It depends on which SR version you use but your Email template should be something like 

def cf = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Multi User Picker CF")
//get the users' display names, in a comma separated string, that are members of the Multi User Picker custom field
def recipients = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)?.collect {def it -> it.displayName}?.join(", ")

Hi ${recipients} <br>
Just wanted to say hi...
