Scriptrunner console - How to use groovy-wslite



I want to implement a Webservice Client at one customer but I'm not able to use the @Grab command. At other customers it works but not for the special on. 

My sample code is

import wslite.soap.*

def client = new SOAPClient('')
def response = client.send(SOAPAction:'') {
  body {
    getBank(xmlns:'') {
      mkp.yieldUnescaped "<blz>66050101</blz>"
// result will be "Karlsruhe, Baden"
return response.getBankResponse.details.ort

The error is

The script could not be compiled: <pre>org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed: General error during conversion: Error grabbing grapes -- /home/jira/.groovy/grapes/resolved-caller-all-caller-working33.xml (No such file or directory)

I found some documentation but I can manage it to work.

I also tried a custom plugin with resolved dependency in POM but I have no knowledge how to configure the plugin modules correctly and how to fetch with @WithPlugin and @PluginComponent 

Can anybody help?

Berst regards

Hello @Christof Hurst _kreuzwerker_ ,

did you manage to use wslite in your Scriptrunenr script and if so how did you go about it?

No, for this installation it didn't work. I developed my own small request method.

Just a guess here but does the customer's jira instance have proper outbound connectivity to the internet?

There could be some networking issues preventing groovy from accessing the package repository

Maybe. But how do I know what is wrong in the connectivity?

At the moment I don't blame it on the connectivity but on the missing user home directory. It seems that @Grab tries to create .groovy directory in users home but there is no user home depending on the OS distribution system
