Scriptrunner post-function: Update reporter into value from a custom field

I have a custom field (user picker) containing a user name.

Tester: "userA" 

I'd like to add a scriptrunner post function that will update current reporter into the "userA" as the value of the custom field Tester.


Could anyone help me with the script?

Hi Thu,

Try a custom script post-function like 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def issue = issue as MutableIssue

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("UserPicker")
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as ApplicationUser

if (cfValue) {
else {
    log.debug "Did not update the reporter because value of UserPicker field was null"

Please let me know if this does the trick.

regards, Thanos
