JIRA ScriptRunner : Status Should be set to OPEN when an Task is converted to a Story or vice versa

Edited

Hey guys need a help..I am converting a Task to a story i.e issuetype = Task to issuetype =Story. When converted the Story should have the status as Open rather than getting the status of the Task. I am trying to do it by listeners ..can anyone help me with this script. TIA

Set up a Script Listener on the IssueUpdated event.

The following script will check if the original issue type is "Task" and if the new issue type is "Story". After that, it will check if the issue can be properly transitioned to "To Do" status, and if the transition is valid, it will transition the issue.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.changeHistoryManager
def workflowManager = ComponentAccessor.workflowManager
def issueService = ComponentAccessor.issueService

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

def changes = changeHistoryManager.getAllChangeItems(event.issue)

def originalIssueType = changes[-1].froms.values()[0]
def newIssueType = changes[-1].tos.values()[0]

if (originalIssueType == "Task" && newIssueType == "Story") {
def actionId = workflowManager.getWorkflow(event.issue).getActionsByName("To Do")[0].id
def transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser, event.issue.id, actionId, issueService.newIssueInputParameters())

if (transitionValidationResult.valid) {
issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)
}
}

But I want it to move to OPEN Status by default when its moved from a Task to a Story. So are you telling me to replace To Do with OPEN. Please correct me if my analysis is wrong. Also, I am planning to write it in the form of Fast Track Transition of an Issuse kind of a listener.Thank you!

If youre using the Fast-track listener you can specify in the Action field which status to transition to.

The event is still IssueUpdated and your condition would be this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.changeHistoryManager

def changes = changeHistoryManager.getAllChangeItems(event.issue)

def originalIssueType = changes[-1].froms.values()[0]
def newIssueType = changes[-1].tos.values()[0]

originalIssueType == "Task" && newIssueType == "Story"
