How to add behaviour

Hello,

 

I'm trying to add a behaviour that should make the field "Impediment reason" mandatory, when "Flagged" is selected.

 

I'm trying with this:

 

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level


FormField flaggedField = getFieldByName("Flagged")
FormField reasonField = getFieldByName("Impediment Reason")

def flagged = flaggedField.getValue()

if(flagged.toString() == '1')
    reasonField.setRequired(true)
else
    reasonField.setRequired(false)

 

But nothing seems to happen. I don't get any errors, so I'm not even sure if I added it correctly. I went to behaviours, select "add new", then I clicked on fields, and added an initialiser, where I put the above code. Then I mapped it to all projects and all issue types.

 

Please let me know what I'm doing wrong.

 

Thank you.

Arama,

Your code above looks almost correct, but it should not be in an initiailizer. Initializers are generally used for setting default values for fields, not for monitoring the value of a field. Put this code in a server-side script attached to the "Flagged" field.

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField

FormField flaggedField = getFieldByName("Flagged")
FormField reasonField = getFieldByName("Impediment Reason")

def flagged = flaggedField.getValue()

if(flagged.toString() == '1') {
reasonField.setRequired(true)
}
else {
reasonField.setRequired(false)
}

Hello Joshua,

 

Thank you very much for your reply.


I tried that and it still seems to not work.

Hi Arama,

Are you using this behaviour with a JIRA Service Desk project? Or is this being used on JIRA server?

Also, what type of field is "Flagged"? Is it a text field, checkbox field, select list, etc...?

Hello,

We are on a JIRA server, and Flagged is a checkbox.

It's working now.

 

def flagged = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def impediment = getFieldByName("Impediment Reason")

if(flagged.getValue() != null){
    impediment.setRequired(true)
}
else { impediment.setRequired(false) }

I`m thinking you are more likely to get a good answer at the developer community:
