How to access filed value from transition screen in validation


I'm trying to check that user fill linked issue in transition screen (with additional conditions on the linked issue, so I need script runner).

How can I access the linked issue it validation?

Hi Henning,

I'm still using the code that you gave me in the answer mentioned above. Thanks again! As a follow-on, how did you find the actual field/parameter names to be used in the code? If I want to use a similar method for another field, how did you find the names issuelinks-linktype and issuelinks-issues? If I remember right, viewing the page source shows me the main issue browse page, and not the transition dialog source.


linktype = request.getParameter('issuelinks-linktype')
linkedIssue = request.getParameter('issuelinks-issues')
(linktype == 'duplicates' && linkedIssue)

It's really only links that you need to worry about. Other fields you get from the issue in the normal way. This is a jira bug/shortcoming imho, haven't got round to reporting it yet.

Robert Poldervaart,

you can enumerate all possible parameters by simple loop:

for (def entry : request.parameterMap) { + "=" + entry.value)

You can, and that's nice and simple (I gave you a "like") - but I wouldn't recommend getting parameters like this. The reason is you will need to do type conversion yourself - eg if the assignee, then from a string to a User object, if "affects versions", from a String[] of version IDs to a Collection of Version objects. I don't think it will take you to a happy place.
