How to use ScriptManager Class from Groovy Runner?

I have tried to retrieve it with ComponentAccessor/ComponentManager. But no luck, it returns null and

GroovyClassLoader gcl = scriptManager.getGcl()

def renameUser = gcl.loadClass("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.canned.admin.RenameUser", true, false).newInstance();

fails with error "Cannot invoke method getGcl() on null object"

I tried both

def scriptManagerClass = ComponentAccessor.getPluginAccessor().getClassLoader().loadClass("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.ScriptManager")

def scriptManager = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(scriptManagerClass)


def scriptManager = (ScriptManager) ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ScriptManager.class);

but it returns a null.

I am trying to write a script to merge multiple users. Any suggestions?

Why you need the the ScriptManager? Simply write your script and execute via script console, this is how I do it. Or do you have any special needs for the ScriptManager?

Hi Henning,

I am trying to reuse the RenameUser from inbuilt "Rename User ID" script to "merge" multiple users. If that works, instead of making changes to the inbuilt scripts or rewriting the whole script , features can be used. There are some examples here it's not working anymore.

If you try to reuse scripts from script runner, I think you have to take care to use the same package (and the corresponding path for the script). Than there should be no problem on using other script runner classes.
