Heads up! ScriptRunner for Bamboo documentation has moved to https://docs.adaptavist.com/sr4bam. Adaptavist will keep this site up for a bit, but no future updates to documentation will be published here. ScriptRunner 6.20.0 will be the last release to link to scriptrunner.adaptavist.com for in-app help.

The settings page (Cog tab) is only accessible for group members with System Administrators permission.

Switch to a Different User Built-in Script

The Switch User built-in script allows administrator users to temporarily assume the identity of another user.

This script is enabled by default. However, if you have extremely strong compliance requirements you may wish to disable this feature.

Users with Script Edit Permissions can still create scripts that perform a user switch, via the API.

To enable or disable Switch User follow the steps below:

  1. Click the administrator Cog

  2. Navigate to ScriptRunner in the sidebar and select ScriptRunner Settings.

    Alternatively, if you are already on a ScriptRunner administration tab, click the Cog tab.
  3. Toggle Switch to a Different User Script on/off.

    enable switch user
