Get user values from Active directory




if someone was wondering how do get values from AD with Scriptrunner, f.e. get manager of Reporter, here you have:

1. You must configure connection with your AD in Scriptrunner - tab Resources.

2. Create Custom Field to display value (in my script is "Przełożony" field)

3. Add script in Listeners:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.ldap.LdapUtil
import org.springframework.ldap.core.AttributesMapper
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue

def Reporter = event.issue.reporter?.displayName
def cf_Manager = LdapUtil.withTemplate('Picker from LDAP') { template ->"", "cn=$Reporter", SearchControls.SUBTREE_SCOPE, { Attributes attributes ->
} as AttributesMapper<String>)

def issue = event.issue as Issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cf_Przelozony = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(event.issue).find { == "Przełożony"}
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
cf_Przelozony.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf_Przelozony), cf_Manager.toString()),changeHolder)




Hi Szymon,

The script you have shared is not working for me. Where exactly you have run this script?


Hi Angelin,

script is in Listeners tab, but you must have configured Connection in "Resources" tab to your LDAP host.


I have configured the LDAP connection but still, when I try running the script in the console, neither did get any results nor any errors.




it won't work in console tab - you must put it in listeners

Hi Szymon  ,

thanks to post this , what is the custom field type you refer to ?

in addition, playing around your script I tried following in console and working well except it shows byte[] for manager attribute while for string attributes it is working well ,

not sure if that something you experienced before or you may help with ? using Active Directory 



import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level

import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.ldap.LdapUtil
import org.springframework.LdapDataEntry
import org.springframework.ldap.query.LdapQueryBuilder
import org.springframework.ldap.query.SearchScope
import org.springframework.ldap.filter.EqualsFilter
import org.springframework.ldap.core.AttributesMapper


def log = Logger.getLogger("")

final resourcePoolName = 'my ldap'


def managerName = LdapUtil.withTemplate('my ldap') { template ->"", "(cn=some name)", SearchControls.SUBTREE_SCOPE, { attributes ->
} as AttributesMapper<Object>)

log.debug managerName.toString()


Hi Fadi,


unfortunately I have the same :)
