Adaptavist Sriptrunner for jira server. What bindings I can use where?

Adaptavist provides documentation about extending Jira functionality through groovy scripts. Unfortunately, it's not clear what bindings can be used where.

Different bindings are used inconsistently and some are missed, so figuring out what can be used and what cannot be is guesswork.


For example, documented bindings for scripted fields.

To get access to custom field value I need to use getCustomFieldValue, besides such key binding as issue is missed altogether.

Now, documented bindings for workflow scripts

To get access to custom field value I need to use cfValues, and way more shortcuts compared to what I allegedly can use in script fields.


Is there a cheat-sheet/document that outlines bindings for different scripts to eliminate/minimize the guesswork.

Console these bindings

Built-in scripts: these bindings

Transition scripts: these bindings

Scripted fields: these and so on

Hi Dennis, 

In every Script Area there is a ? symbol that will gives you a dialog with the available binding in the specific context

You mentioned that Different bindings are used inconsistently and some are missed. Do you have an example ? Maybe is something that we missed somewhere and we have to include it. 

Regards, Thanos

That is really handy.

I also like the idea of @Dennis Alexander for creating a cheat sheet or handy reference. This will help the newbies like me to learn quickly.

That is interesting. Thank you, this functionality does not work for me on Chrome OS;

also, Ctrl + Space shortcut does not work on Chrome OS as it reserved (and can not be changed) to change the input method (from EN to DE for example)

If this info is available by pressing on (?) and you guys have it, why it is not part of the documentation?

Chrome Version: Version 75.0.3770.61 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)


An example of the inconsistency is that at workflow there is cfValues and getCustomFieldValue in script fields. But this is just an example.
