How to retrieve linked issue custom field values to parent issue.

Hi All,

 

Is there any way I can pull linked issue values to parent issue.

For example, A is a parent issue and B is linked to A. Is there any way we can retrieve Issue B custom field values in Issue A. 

 

TIA!!

Below is the code I'm using 

import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

def Issue issue = issue

def User user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("username").getDirectoryUser()
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager

def linkCollection = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, user)

if (linkCollection && linkCollection.allIssues) {
def CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_xxxx")
def linkedIssue = linkCollection.allIssues.first()
return linkedIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
}

 

I get the error at the underlined code.

Hi Ashish,

Were you able to figure it out or do you still need help with this issue?

Hi Joshua,

Can you please help me on this.

 

Thanks,
Ash.

Hi Ash,

You could create a scripted field that gets values from issues  that are linked. For example, if Parent issue A was of type "Bug", the code for your scripted field would look like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
if (issue.issueType.name == "Bug") {
issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.id).first() { issueLink -> // go through all issues linked off of the Story
def linkedIssue = issueLink.getDestinationObject()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("customfield_xxxx")
return linkedIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
}
}

Hi Joshua,

 

Thanks for your code, I see cannot find matching method error at line 5 as shown

Hi Ash,

Sorry about that, that script contained a small error.

However, I think that script will not work for you anyway. Could you clarify the relationship between Issue A and Issue B? Is this correct:

  • Issue A is the parent issue
  • Issue B is a sub-task of Issue A

In that case, a script like this should work:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def subTasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects()
def childCfValue
if (subTasks) {
issue.getSubTaskObjects().each { subtask -> // go through sub-task issues
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12220")
childCfValue = subtask.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
}
}
return childCfValue

Issue A is a Parent issue and Issue B is a linked issue to the parent issues.

 

Thank you,  I will try this code and update you.

Hi Joshua

 

Can I get the script for linked issues? I am trying to get it for a linked issue which should have a custom text field filled. If it is empty, my validator should through error. 

Above script is working for subtasks. I tried to change it for linked issues but in vain, the linked issues script is not working, throwing error as shown in above screenshot of Ash
