Troubleshooting this post-function configuration: In case the post-function does not work as expected these are the things to look out for
When you add this post-function to a transition and trigger the transition, the add-on picks the value entered in the Comment field and adds it as a comment on all the issues linked to the current issue through the selected link type. The Comment to be created can be any simple text, e.g. This is a comment. You can also use Nunjucks annotations to insert issue, linked issue, transition and current user information into the comment text, using the 'issue', 'linkedIssue', 'transition' and 'currentUser' variables, respectively. To find out more about these variables, see How to insert information using Nunjucks annotations.
Restrict to Group: Restricts the visibility of the comment to a specified group. When you select a valid group name in the Restrict to Group field, the comment will be visible only to the members of the specified group. For no restriction, leave the field blank.
Restrict to Project Role: Restricts the visibility of the comment to a selected project role. When you select a project role from the Restrict to Project Role drop-down, the comment will be visible only to the members of the selected project role. For no restriction, leave the field blank.
Restrict to Internal (Jira Service Desk only): Restricts the visibility of the comment to the Service Desk Agents and Collaborators only.
