Listener - Condition for CustomField change AND custom date field in range

Hi there. My organization is using Jira Server v7.12.3 and uses the Scriptrunner add-on. Is there a way to set up a Listener that fires an event when one custom field (number) on an issue changes AND another custom field (date) is in a specific range? I have the first part of the condition set up, but not the second.

Here's what I have so far:

  • I'm using Scriptrunner's "Fires an event when condition is true" Listener
  • Set to run in Project "PROJECT ABC"
  • Event Trigger: "Issue Updated"
  • Condition:
    • def change = changeItems.find {it.field == "Field A"}
      if (change) {
      def oldValue = change.oldstring
      def newValue = change.newstring
  • Event to fire: "Custom Event ABC"

So, everything is working thus far, but I'm looking to add the below to the condition:

"Field B" > -1d AND "Field B" <= 3d

"Field B" is a custom date field in this case. So, I'd like "Custom Event ABC" only to fire if "Field A" changes AND if "Field B" is in the range of time I specify. Anyone know the right way to script for what I'm trying to do.

Hi @Andrew Zimmerman , yo could use something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.changehistory.ChangeHistoryItem
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.changehistory.ChangeHistoryManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import org.joda.time.DateTime
import org.joda.time.Days
import org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue

import java.sql.Timestamp

IssueEvent event = event as IssueEvent
MutableIssue issue = event.getIssue()

ChangeHistoryManager changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.getChangeHistoryManager()
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

GenericValue changeLogs = event.getChangeLog()
ArrayList<ChangeHistoryItem> changedItems = changeHistoryManager.getAllChangeItems(issue).findAll {
it.changeGroupId ==
ChangeHistoryItem change = changedItems.find { it.field == "Field A" }

CustomField cfFieldB = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(11111L) // Field B
Timestamp fielB = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfFieldB) as Timestamp

Date date = new Date()
DateTime now = new DateTime(new Timestamp(date.getTime()))
DateTime fieldBDate = new DateTime(fielB.getTime())
Integer days = Days.daysBetween(now, fieldBDate).getDays()

if (change && days > -1 && days <= 3) {

//do whatever


Thank you @Alejandro Suárez [Tecnofor]! In the area where you wrote {{11111L}}, is that where I would input the field name of "Custom Field B"?

Hi @Andrew Zimmerman , you have to input the ID of the field B

Awesome, thanks for all of your help - @Alejandro Suárez [Tecnofor], one more question for now. Do you know if this will work if field B is a Script Field itself? (It's a scripted date field).

Essentially, it adds "Field A" (a number field) to "Field C" (a date field), applies Field A as "business days" and spits out "Field B" as a new scripted date.

Yes, if the script field gives you a Date Time, it should work.
