Create a default Epic Link using Behavior

Trying to set a default Epic Link on Create using Scriptrunner Behavior

// Behavior Server Side Script

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

if (getActionName() == "Create") {
return // not the initial action, so don't set default values
}

// set a select list value
def ProgramFld = getFieldByName("Epic Link")
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(ProgramFld.getFieldId())
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)
def optionToSelect = options.find { it.value == "PRDRPTD-1" }
ProgramFld.setFormValue(optionToSelect.optionId)

Hey Brian!

The Epic link is a link, you won't get that through it's options. You might need to set this value to an actual link.

Try this:

ProgramFld.setFormValue("PRDRPTD-1")

Or:

ProgramFld.setFormValue("{YOUR JIRA URL}" + "/browse/PRDRPTD-1")

 If this doesn't work let me know and I'll try to get this to work in my local instance.

Cheers!
