JIRA Scriptrunner access URL

Paul Reid I'm New Here Oct 09, 2017

Hi 

I was wondering if it's possible to get the full URL for the JIRA create issue page from inside Scriptrunner. At the moment I'm able to get the jira.base url from the ApplicationProperties using the ComponentAccessor.

Ideally, I'd like to get the full url, including any arguments contained within the URL. Does another application property or any other component accessor expose this information?

What I'm trying to do is populate some values in a JIRA issue on the create screen using the behaviours part of Scriptrunner. The user will be taken to JIRA with a parameterised URL which fills out some of the fields such as summary, passed in as args.

However, the URL also contains an id field as an argument which I'm hoping Scriptrunner can extract from the URL and then use to poll an API to populate other fields on the create issue page.

Cheers

Paul

Since you're working with Behaviours, there's a variable in the binding for the current request. It's an HttpServletRequest object. Inside your Behaviour's Groovy script, you could get the URL as a string using

request.requestURL.toString()

You could then parse that URL string and retrieve its query parameters using normal Java methods. See the answers at https://stackoverflow.com/a/13592324/1524502 for some examples.
