Help with script of Transition Linked issues with scriptrunner Edited


I'm trying to create a script with scriptrunner to be able to tansition two linked issues that, each from different projects. What I want is that when one of these issues goes to "done", the other one does it automatically. 

¿Does anyone have an example of a script i can use?

¿Do i have to select a postfunction or a condition in scriptrunner?

I'm new in groovy and I'm lost!

"Condition" in workflow only determine if/when a transition button should be available.

PostFunction happens after the transition has been initiated and passed all the validation rules (validators).

So your scenario is a good fit for a post function.

But you indicated that the 2 linked issues are in different projects. That means that they may also have different workflows. That means that you may need to create a post function in both workflows if either of the 2 issues could be marked done first.

You didn't specify your deployment type... so I'll assume "Server". If you are on Cloud, someone else will need to help you as I don't work with Cloud much.

In the workflow Post Functions tab, click "Add post function"

Select "Custom script post-function"

Your script would look something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.TransitionOptions

def issueService = ComponentAccessor.issueService
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

//if you have 2 different workflows use the following line
//def actionId = 21 //put the ID of the transition you want to run, that's the number that shows in the workflow text mode for the transition that ends in "Done"

//if the same workflow on all linked issues use this line
def actionId = transientVars["actionId"] as Integer

def links = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, currentUser)
def transitionOptions = new TransitionOptions.Builder()
//if you want to ignore any condition that would normally hide the transition, uncoment the next line
//transitionOptions =transitionOptions.skipConditions()
//if you want to ignore any validator that could stop the transition, uncoment the next line
//transitionOptions =transitionOptions.skipValidators()
transitionOptions =
def transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,, actionId, new IssueInputParametersImpl(), transitionOptions)
def transitionResult = issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)

If you are likely to have other issue links, this might need to be adjusted a little.
