Add users as project administrators to each newly created project

This is a fully fledge example, of how to use the Listener API, to add users as project administrators to each newly created project.

        this.userNamesOrIds = (accountIds = StringUtils.trimToNull(accountIds)) != null ? Arrays.asList(StringUtils.split(accountIds, "; ")) : null;

                } else {
                    log.warn("Cannot find user: " + userNameOrId);

            if (membersAndRoles.size() > 0) {
                UserDto user = event.getUser();
                ProjectDto project = event.getSource();

                try {
                    projectManager.setProjectMemberRoles(user, project, membersAndRoles, null);
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    log.warn("Assigning project admin failed", e);


Since this Listener needs extra configuration, it cannot be automatically deployed by adding a @Component annotation!

Instead you must add an appropriate <bean> configuration to ~/CB-../tomcat/webapps/cb/WEB-INF/classes/my-ApplicationContext.xml, e.g.

   <bean id="assignAdminAccountToNewProjectListener" class="com.intland.codebeamer.event.impl.sample.AssignAdminAccountToNewProjectListener">
      <property name="accountId" value="1;44"/>
