Read Structure from another thread


I prepare listener of rank change event with scriptrunner. I change rank from Structure by drag&drop of rows, structure is sorted by rank.

When I read structure in main thread in listener and get data, then I see that sequence of rows is old. If then I run the same script from console then sequence of rows is new.

Now I think script from listener executes before rebuild of structure in main thread. But if I try to make new thread, make sleep and then try to read structure I get nothing.

Please help. I am not sure that I work in new thread in right way.

In  atlassan-jira.log there is no log entry for line " "Structures - "+structures+"\n"'

  If I move block below out of new thread block, than structures is empty

I've answered this question in our ServiceDesk, let me publish the answer here as well:

The reason for such behavior is that StructureManager.getStructuresByName returns a list of structures accessible to the current user at some permission level. The current user is kept in a thread-local variable. As the current user is not specified, the list is empty.

To find a user:

import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager

UserManager userManager

def user = userManager.getUserByKey("admin")

To execute code under a user authority:

def structures = StructureAuth.sudo(user, false, { structureComponents.getStructureManager().getStructuresByName(structureName, PermissionLevel.VIEW) });
