ScriptRunner fails to execute the code when the code is pasted to the script console window

I observe a strange behavior of ScriptRunner when I paste the code in the ScriptRunner's script console. The static checker gives the green light for that code but clicking ‘Run’ returns with following error (string 'aaa.bbb.ccc' stands for a real path on the system):

org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:

Script392.groovy: 39: unable to resolve class aaa.bbb.ccc.MyClass

@ line 39, column 1.

   import aaa.bbb.ccc.MyClass



1 error

Where line number 39 is the line where the class is mentioned in the code for the first time and the import is done on that line. 


The class itself is perfectly correct (see above), unchanged and used over and over in a different, already existing code.


Put the same code in a file and run it from the script console choosing option 'FILE' instead of 'SCRIPT'. The script is executed without errors.

Hello @Jedrzej Wolski

It's a known bug of Scriprunner, here is the issue at adaptavist support.

There you can find some workarounds.

That is a bug in my opinion. There is an open ticket in Adaptavist:
