Using Behaviours to restrict issue type selection for project role

We use a behaviours script to restrict the issue type selection for a specific project role.

For the restriction to one issue type the following script works perfectly:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE
def constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()
def queryIssueType = constantsManager.getAllIssueTypeObjects().find { == "Feedback"}
def IssueType = getFieldById(ISSUE_TYPE)


The question is: How to change the script for a restriction to TWO issue types???

What version of ScriptRunner are you currently using? 

There is a bug that may prevent you from being able to do this effecting newer versions.


Hi Jenna,

we are using the version 5.2.2 of ScriptRunner.

Will there be a solution for the bug in the near future?

I believe that bug will effect you then.

I'm afraid we don't have a set timeline for issues, so I cannot give you a good estimate.


@Judith Becker Try this approach.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

issue.projectObject.key == 'AR' &&
(!groupManager.isUserInGroup(issue.reporter?.name, 'abc') && in 'Bug' ||'Story')
