Scriptrunner error help required

hopefully a simple question. I am getting the below error:

2018-01-04 11:08:36,910 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: *************************************************************************************
2018-01-04 11:08:36,910 ERROR [workflow.ScriptWorkflowFunction]: Script function failed on issue: HPD-211, actionId: 1, file: <inline script>
groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: currentUser for class: Script61

any suggestions on how to resolve?

Hi Tim, 

Try to get the current user in your script like 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

no errors this time, but not getting the result i need.

strange. thanks though.

What result you expected ?

Is that a custom script post function ?

PS. A debug message may help you a bit more, something like 

log.debug "Current user key is ${currentUser.key}"


Thank you for your help.

We had a workshop this morning to find a different solution.


If you only need to add a Simple comment during a transition, the below code should definitely work.


JIRA: v7.6.9

ScriptRunner: v5.4.30


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.*

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
Issue issue = issue

def originalComment = transientVars.comment as String
def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()

def comment = originalComment + "\n*This* _is_ a sample comment"
commentManager.create(issue, currentUser, comment, false)
