Get Value of Cascading Select on Screen

I have a screen with a cascading select list called "Root Cause", if the second list = to "Cannot Reproduce" I want to set the Resolution field to "Cannot Reproduce" automatically for the user. I'm having trouble with reading the values in the Root Cause field though. I'm using Behaviours in Script Runner to accomplish this. I have the script on the Root Cause field. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.RESOLUTION

def rootCause = getFieldByName("Root Cause")
def rcVal = rootCause.getFormValue() as Map

if (rcVal.get("1") == "Cannot Reproduce")
//This part works, the if statement doesn't
def constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.constantsManager
def allowedResolutions = constantsManager.resolutions.findAll
{ in ["Cannot Reproduce"]

The script is correctly on the Root Cause field but it has some mistakes:

  • To get the value of a field use getValue()
  • To set the value of a field use setFormValue() and not setFieldOptions()
    • setFieldOptions() is used to set the available options for fields such as checkboxes or radio buttons

      Take a look at the Behaviours API to see available methods.

  • You can access the resolutions from the ResolutionManager and not the ConstantsManager

Correct script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.config.ResolutionManager

def resolutionManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ResolutionManager)
def resolutionToSet = resolutionManager.getResolutionByName("RESOLUTION_NAME")

def resolutionField = getFieldById("resolution")

def selectListField = getFieldById(fieldChanged)
def selectListValue = selectListField.value

if (selectListValue.size() > 1 && selectListValue[1] == "SELECT_LIST_OPTION_NAME") {

Thanks for the update to set the resolution, but Behaviours doesn't like

selectlistValue.size() and selectListValue[1] 

Note, the Root Cause field is a Cascading Select List..

Dont worry about those errors. The static type checker cant always correctly infer variables types. You can read more about it here:

Also, I changed the script a bit. Make sure you grab the new one.

Awesome.. Thank you. That worked perfectly.

I am getting "cannot invoke method size on null object"?

I cannot seem to get the value of my Multi Select list?
