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.

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

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) }
