Disable Tab based on security group script disabling for everyone

Hi all


I would like to disable a tab for everyone but a specific security group but for some reason it's not seeing my condition and just disabling it for everyone


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

// Get the current user
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()

if (ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager().getGroupsForUser(currentUser)?.find { != "Jira Service Desk Time Log" })

Hi @Steve Letch ,

I not sure that condition is well. != "Jira Service Desk Time Log"

If user have a lots group it return true for all groups!="Jira.."

Try some like next:

if (!ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager().getGroupsForUser(currentUser)?.find { == "Jira Service Desk Time Log" })


See I want to hide it from all users except that group so I need it to be a != unless you can think of a better way

May I clarify?

someA = [a,b,c,d,f]

someB = [a,b,c,f]

someC = [a,b]

I suppose we want exclude 'd'. We should return 'true' for someB and someC.

1. return true only for someA:

if ( some.find{ it == 'd'} )
someA - true (can find 'd')

someB - false (cannot find 'd')

someC - false(cannot find 'd')

2. Inverse result:

if ( ! some.find{ it == 'd'} )
someA - false (can find 'd')

someB - true (cannot find 'd')

someC - true (cannot find 'd')
