ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud - condition for sending notification post function

I have a ScriptRunner post function that sends out a notification email, but I'm trying to give a condition on a checkbox custom field.  There are 3 options to the custom field, but when I use issue.fields.customfield_10133 == "Option1" it is always returning false.

To validate that I am using a valid option, I ran the following in Script Console to validate the value on an issue where it was set to "Option1"

def issueKey = 'KEY-8000'

def customFieldName = 'customfield_10133'

def result = get("/rest/api/2/issue/${​​​​​​​issueKey}​​​​​​​?fields=${​​​​​​​customFieldName}​​​​​​​")

.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')


if (result.status == 200) {​​​​​​​     return result.body.fields[customFieldName]      }​​​​​​​ else {​​​​​​​     return "Error retrieving issue ${​​​​​​​result}​​​​​​​"      }​​​​​​​


Should I use the ID number associated with the option, or is there another way to state my condition?

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that checkbox fields use a List data structure which means you must get all values and check if they match the value you want to have as the selected value in order to test this in a workflow post function condition.

I can confirm I have created an example of how to do this here which you can use as a reference guide to help create the condition which you require.

I hope this information helps.



@Kristian Walker (Adaptavist)  Thank you for the information.  I placed this suggested correction in my post function and now I am getting an error: [Static Type Checking] - No such property: Value for class: java.lang.object @ line 1, Column 51


I'm new to Groovy - do I need to import a different library for this to work?  This is for JIRA cloud.

Hi Matt,

This is just a static type checking warning where the compiler does not understand the code as described here and will not stop the code from working.

This means you should be able to save and run the code and it will work as expected.
