ScriptRunner Validator - Subtasks have Select CF initialized


Im trying to make a validation in a transition where the parent check if all the sub-tasks have a cf: select list, initialized with a value.

Actually I have done this:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("UO type")

if (! issue.isSubTask()) {
return true

def selectedValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as Option
issue.subTaskObjects.every {selectedValue != null}

-> But its not working.

Thanks in advance.validator.png

The issue is in your last 2 lines.

selectedValue is specific to the parent issue, attempting to check this for a null value in the every{} block is not achieving what you think.

Here is the complete logic that you are trying to accomplish if I understand correctly

def UOTypeValue = subTaskIssue.getCustomerFieldValue(cf)
UOTypeValue != null

 And it can be further simplified because of the built-in groovy truthiness


Hello @Peter-Dave Sheehan , thanks for the corrections and your quick response.

This helps me a lot! :)


Have a nice day.
