ScriptRunner/Behaviours how to get information of an issue when you know the issue name

Hello Community,

 

I am having a bit of trouble with Behaviours.

I would like to know if there is a way to grab the contents of an Issue if you know the name of an Issue.

In my Behaviour script I get the name of an Issue (provided by a custom field). From there I would like to use the name of the Issue to find that Issue in Jira and discover its resolution status, from there I would like to have a conditional statement that if a certain Issue is resolved then I do something, else I do nothing.

I appreciate any help!

-Roberto

 

My Script currently looks as follows:

def formField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged()) //Grab the field my behaviour is attached to

def issueName = formField.getValue() // Grab the value in the field a.k.a the name of an issue in Jira

Hey @Roberto L

What Aleksandr said is not wrong, but there is an easier way. You can use the variable underlyingIssue, so if you are in any screen, except the Create Issue (which I guess this is not the case) then youcan use someth like 

log.debug "Issue is $underlyingIssue"

// the issue does no exist (probably you are in a create issue screen)
if (! underlyingIssue) {
return
}

// those are saved values in the issue and NOT necessary the current values in the form, use
def reporter = underlyingIssue.reporter?.displayName
def description = underlyingIssue.description

// in order to get the current value in the form
def descriptionValueInForm = getFieldById("description").value

So the underlyingIssue wll be an Issue

Hi Roberto,

you can obtain IssueManager and then use it methods like getIssueObject, getIssueByCurrentKey etc.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();

Thank you for the response @Aleksandr Zuevich It worked like a charm!
