List users in unchecked tasks in user field

You can use the following script in a script field:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.plugin.PluginAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
PluginAccessor pluginAccessor = ComponentAccessor.getPluginAccessor()
Class panelContentServiceClass = pluginAccessor.getClassLoader().findClass("")
Class panelRefClass = pluginAccessor.getClassLoader().findClass("")
Class attributeRefClass = pluginAccessor.getClassLoader().findClass("")
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager() 

def panelContentService = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(panelContentServiceClass)

// Constants to customize
def PANEL_NAME = "Tasks"
def USER_ATTRIBUTE = "Owner"

// Define Elements panel
def elementsPanel = panelContentService.getPanel(issue, panelRefClass.byName(PANEL_NAME))

// Get Elements panel items
Set<ApplicationUser> usersSet = new HashSet<ApplicationUser>()

for (def panelItem : elementsPanel.getPanelItems()) {
    def taskDone = panelItem.getAttributeContent(attributeRefClass.byName(CHECKBOX_ATTRIBUTE))?.getValue()
    if(!taskDone) {
        def owner = panelItem.getAttributeContent(attributeRefClass.byName(USER_ATTRIBUTE))?.getValue()
        if(owner != null) {


return usersSet


  • Edit variables PANEL_NAME, CHECKBOX_ATTRIBUTE and USER_ATTRIBUTE to your needs.
  • The type of the script field must be User Picker (multiple users)
  • The Search of the field must be Multi User Picker Searcher
