Get members of an LDAP group


This script uses the LDAP resource connection to retrieve LDAP users who are members of the provided LDAP group.


As a Jira admin, I want to retrieve the names of users who are members of a remote LDAP group to populate a Team Members custom field within my Jira issues.

Good to Know

This script demonstrates how to get a List of LDAP user common names (CN's) who are members of a given group distinguished name (DN). You can test this script in the script console and then tweak it to fit your needs for other automation features such as a listener or a post-function script that automatically updates an issue field with this CN list.

  • Use the groupDn variable to define the distinguished name of the group you want to get members from.
  • Use the ldapQueryFilter variable to define the full LDAP HarcodedFilter that will be used with the LdapQueryBuilder.
  • Use the resourcePoolName to store the name of the LDAP Resource you created with ScriptRunners Resources feature.

You can read more on Advanced LDAP Queries using the LdapQueryBuilder here.
