Get issue key for current context

I am using Jira cloud with script runner. I'm able to fetch a certain issue by hardcoding the issue key, however I want this to be dynamic by using the current issue that triggers my post-function:

def issueKey = 'WS-456'

def issue = get("/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')

I want 'WS-456' to be dynamic please

Hi @maya.grozin 

Add this on top of your code.

def issueKey = issue.key

I hope it helps.



Thanks for your response - unfortunately I have tried this and it is not working.


Hi @maya.grozin 

In that case I suggest raise a support request so someone cane take a look at it.

All other scripts are working?
