Add-on User Permissions
The add-on user is the user that is created for the add-on app and has the permissions granted for that add-on. The add-on user is automatically generated upon ScriptRunner installation and added to the Atlassian-addon-group permission group.
Scripts written for Scripted Fields are always executed as the add-on user and, as such, will have the correct set of permissions granted. However, if it is the case that the permission schemes are changed for the Atlassian-addon-group, then there is a possibility that Scripted Fields will not work as intended.
