Hi Lukas,

I can show you how to get a list of all fields on the screens for a given issue if that helps.


Hi Lukas,

I ended up in the exactly same situation as you and solved it by:


//imports ad lib...

Set<String> getFieldsOnScreen(FieldScreenScheme fieldScreenScheme, IssueOperation issueOperation) {
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(CustomFieldManager)
Set<String> result = new HashSet<String>()

FieldScreen fieldScreen = fieldScreenScheme.getFieldScreen(issueOperation)
fieldScreen.getTabs().each{FieldScreenTab fieldScreenTab ->
fieldScreenTab.getFieldScreenLayoutItems().each{FieldScreenLayoutItem fieldScreenLayoutItem ->
String fieldId = fieldScreenLayoutItem.getFieldId()
// I am only interested in custom fields - change appropriately
if (fieldId.startsWith("customfield")) {
CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(fieldId)

return result

Set<String> getFieldsOnScreens(FieldScreenScheme fieldScreenScheme) {
// I am only interested in Edit and View screens - change appropriately
return getFieldsOnScreen(fieldScreenScheme, IssueOperations.EDIT_ISSUE_OPERATION) + getFieldsOnScreen(fieldScreenScheme, IssueOperations.VIEW_ISSUE_OPERATION)

IssueTypeScreenSchemeManager issueTypeScreenSchemeManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueTypeScreenSchemeManager()

IssueTypeScreenScheme issueTypeScreenScheme = issueTypeScreenSchemeManager.getIssueTypeScreenScheme(<My Project>)
FieldScreenScheme fieldScreenScheme = issueTypeScreenScheme.getEffectiveFieldScreenScheme(<My IssueType>)

return getFieldsOnScreens(fieldScreenScheme)
