Behaviour not hiding field on first trigger on Dashboard

Some of my users like to transition their issues directly from a dashboard. The transition screens have scriptrunner behaviours that hide the comment field from them as part of the initializer. What I've noticed is that the first time a particular transition screen is displayed - regardless of issue, the other parts of the initializer are run successfully, but hiding the Comment field does not work. Without reloading the page, subsequent calls to the transition screen - again, regardless of issue - produce the desired behaviour. Reloading the page seems to reset the screens and the comment field is not hidden.

First time after reloading:


Subsequent calls:


Comment field is hidden correctly.

Hi Brian, could you share the script you used to hide the Comment field? I set it in my Behaviours as a server-side script for the Comment field and mine was hidden successfully even when transitioning issues from the Dashboard.

Hi Tye,


I'm using this in my behaviour initializer: 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

def triggerActions = ["Add RCPE Notes"]"MCR - RCPE Notes Behaviour will${triggerActions.contains(getActionName()) ? " " : " not "}execute for ${getActionName()}")
if( ! triggerActions.contains(getActionName())) return;

def comments = getFieldByName("Comments");

Again, it works on the second access of the transition, but not on the first. So it seems like it's not loading the behaviour in time.
