Hello,


I'm syncing issues between two server instances of Jira(Server(source) and DC(target)).  We user Azure to authenticate the users in the server instance using an external corporate email for username.  The users do exist on the DC instance, but they are assigned user ids as the username that is used to authenticate using LDAP .  The user email in the DC profile is a different email than the one used in the Azure email essentially making them different users.


We are using the latest version of Exalate in both side of the integration.  I have added two custom fields to populate the user info as below, but the field is getting populated. 


Outgoing sync


replica.assignee = issue.assignee
replica.reporter = issue.reporter


Incoming Sync

issue.customFields."External Assignee".value = nodeHelper.getUserByUsername(replica.assignee?.username)
issue.customFields."External Reporter".value = nodeHelper.getUserByUsername(replica.reporter?.username)  


Any idea why these custom fields are getting populated?  Any recommendation on how to map the users in a more efficient way.  Eventually we will have to  manually re-assign the users to match the actual users specified in the source.

      Hi Ziad Qadora


      What is the type of the customfields (External Assignee, External Reporter)?

      the nodeHelper,getUserByUsername returns an user object, and the custom field needs to be a user customfield to accept user objects.


      Alternative is that if 'Esternal Assignee' is a text field, you can do something like


      issue.customFields."External Assignee".value = nodeHelper,getUserByUsername(replica.assignee?.username)?.displayName ?: replica.assignee?.displayName

      Let me know

        Hi,


        Instead of populating the custom text field, when possible to construct the username from the remote issue information then we can use that instead.   Below is an example of constructing the information using the displayName and populating the assignee with that information.


        def assigneeUser = replica.assignee?.displayName

        if(assigneeUser){
             String[] str;
             str = assigneeUser.split(' ');
            def firstName = str[0].toLowerCase();
            def lastName = str[1].toLowerCase();
            def lastInitial = lastName.take(1);
            def username = firstName.concat(lastInitial);
            issue.assignee = nodeHelper.getUserByUsername(username);
        }


        If anyone has used a more efficient way, then please let me know

          A small optimization is by using a regexp, but this is rather style than anything else (and me bragging)


          def name = replica.assignee?.displayName
          def matcher =  name =~ /(.*) (.)/
          if (name && matcher.groupCount() == 2) {
             def username = (matcher[0][1] + matcher[0][2]).toLowerCase()
             issue.assignee = nodeHelper.getUserByUsername(username)
          }


          It is always a good thing to try this first in a groovy web console

        Hi,


        using  issue.customFields."External Assignee".value = replica.assignee?.displayName  has worked.

          Hi Francis,


          You are correct that the custom fields are single line text field.  


          I have used the suggested code and the custom field for the external assignee and reporter are not getting populated getting updated still.

            Oops - had a mistake in my suggestion - fixed in the mean time.
