Script runner manual.

Greetings. Where I can find information or vocabulary which help me writing scripts in Script Runner? I found a lot of examples but I don't found information about meaning of those scripts.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Level


//Grab necessary Components
def cfm = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()

def clientName = "Acme"
def sourceName = "My Source""clientName: " + clientName)"sourceName: " + sourceName)

//Set custom text field
def cfClient = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Client")

//Set custom single select field
def customField = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Source") + " customField before: " + issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField))

def fieldConfig = customField.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig)
def option = options.find{it.value == "My Source"}

issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, option) + " customField after: " + issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField))



import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor -  why we importing Comp accessor - and what is it, I have no idea

def customField = cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Source") - def customField...ok, I understood it, but... cfm.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Source")... no idea, where I can find some information about those commands? Mb it's part of Groovy language, I really lost, pls help. Thank you.

I think you best start with a groovy tutorial (there are several on the net), then go through the scriptrunner documentation, try to copy and adapt some examples, and finally search specific examples on the net.

(part of) the Jira API can be found at, but this is no cook-book, but a reference guide....

Thx so much. I'll try!
