JMWE set field value - conditional execution problem

Hi, am trying to use a post function to populate a field based on the value of another field. I am using the JMWE set field value post function to do this. This part is working fine.

I am also trying to restrict the post function to only run when the issue creator is not 'userA' but I cant get it to work.

I am using the groovy expression    issue.creator != "userA"  but the result is returning true even though i am using a test issue where the creator is userA...

Can anyone point out where i am going wrong?

Thanks,

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

are you on Jira Server or Cloud?

If on Server, you should use:

issue.getAsString("creator") != "userA"

as documented here: https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/JMWE/pages/107413612/Standard+JIRA+fields#StandardJIRAfields-Creator
