Method getValue() does not work on initialiser function

Antoine Berry Community Leader Dec 07, 2017

Hi,

It seems that in the initialiser function behaviours cannot evaluate any field on view screen.

i.e. something like 

def field = getFieldById("customfield_12345")

returns null. Which prevents us doing any conditional formmating... bummer.

Best regards,

Antoine

There are two problems here.

  1. Form values aren't available in initializers. You may need to use the underlyingIssue object. See open bug https://productsupport.adaptavist.com/browse/SRJIRA-2027
  2. Behaviours function on the Create Issue, Update/Edit Issue, Assign Issue, and Workflow Transition screens. They don't work on the View Issue screen. See https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/behaviours-overview.html#_screens

Hi Joshua,

One more issue about the initializer. If I edit the issue, and validate the update, the initializer runs multiple times, I do not know why. As a result, the popup appears several times, and makes the feature unusable.

Regards,

Antoine

Ah, I forgot about underlyingIssue. It actually solved my problem since I need to evaluate a custom field and add a pop-up accordingly. 

This piece of information is nice to have in mind though.

Thanks.
