user preforming transition in scripted Post Function


Im using Script runner to run a Groovy Script as a Post Function.
But I cant figure out how to get data regarding the user preforming the transition.

Anyone know the property to get for the user (Like "issue" gets the current issue.)

You can use componentManager.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser() to get the current user.


String currentUser = ((WorkflowContext) transientVars.get("context")).getCaller();

But this "only" gets me the user name. I need the user Object (com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User)

Found that this works:

User currentUser = UserUtils.getUser(((WorkflowContext) transientVars.get("context")).getCaller())
