How do i get the value of the "Issue" that is part of the "Linked Issues" field?

Hi

How do i get the value of the "Issue" that is part of the "Linked Issues" field:

jira-edit-issue-screen.PNG

 

My Groovy code for Jira Behaviours looks like:

import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level

def log = Logger.getLogger("blah.blah.blah")
log.setLevel(Level.DEBUG)

def linkedIssuesCF = getFieldById("issuelinks")

def issueLinksCF = getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype")

log.debug "xxx1 linkedIssuesCF = (" + linkedIssuesCF + ")"
log.debug "xxx2 issueLinksCF = ( " + issueLinksCF + ")"

def bugid = getFieldById("issuelinks-issues-textarea")  // <<<--- Is this the right name?  If not, how do i get the value of this field???
log.debug "xxx3 bugid = (" + bugid + ")"

In my Groovy code, i will need to take some action based on field values of the issue key that the user specified in "Issue" field

This is what i see in the atlassian-jira.log file:

xxx1 linkedIssuesCF = (Form field ID: issuelinks, value: issuelinks)
xxx2 issueLinksCF = ( Form field ID: issuelinks-linktype, value: mitigates)
xxx3 bugid = ( Form field ID: issuelinks-issues-textarea, value: null )

Hi Andrew,

Did you have any success with the subject? 

Thanks and BR.

Viktor

Thanks for the follow-up.

But i've had no such luck.  :(

Hi Andrew,

I have found a way to achieve what I needed. 

I could refer to both of these FormFields like this:

FormField issuelinks = getFieldById("issuelinks")
FormField links = getFieldById("issuelinks-issues")

if (links.getFormValue()){
links.clearError()
//if only 1 link it is a string, if more - it is a list
String linkedIssues = links.getFormValue()
if (log.isDebugEnabled()) log.debug logPref + "Value " + linkedIssues.length()
}

Oh yeah, if you need to refer to that field in behaviour, you need to edit behavior (field id) after it's created:

<field id="issuelinks-issues" required="null" readonly="null" hidden="null" validator="server" 

Viktor

Thanks for your help.

That field is only used for adding new links.

It doesn't store issue links as values, you should be able to see this by adding an issue link and then viewing the field on the Edit screen again. 

You should instead ask IssueLinkManager for the links.

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def innerLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.id)
def outerLinks = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.id)

List<Issue> relevantIssues = new ArrayList()

for(issueLink in innerLinks){
    relevantIssues.add(issueLink.getSourceObject())
}

for(issueLink in outerLinks){
    relevantIssues.add(issueLink.getDestinationObject())
}

relevantIssues should then hold a list of all linked issue objects. 

Thanks for the reply.

I need to know the issue that the user is trying to add so i can look up some info in that Jira issue.  If some condition is NOT met, then when the user clicks on the "Update" button, they cannot proceed.  The Groovy code should display an error message and prevent the user from adding new links if the issue the user is adding doesn't meet some criteria.

So my requirements cannot be achieved?

Thanks

--Andrew
