Scriptrunner listener copy field value from subtask to parent

Mike Rathwell Community Leader Nov 20, 2018

I have a use case where I am trying to get the first start and last end date to copy up from all subtasks in an issue to the parent. So far I am working in the Scriptrunner console to get it close before I turn it loose in a listener. I am able to capture all the information I need to set the value but it throws a "Cannot find matching method" error on the line that ostensibly should set the field value. What I have so far is based on a single subtask (for dev and debug) which DOES find the dates I want and the parent issue

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import java.sql.Timestamp;
import java.util.Date.*

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
def startDateField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11014");
def endDateField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11015");
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

Issue sourceIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("ITPROJECTS-295");
Issue parentIssue = sourceIssue.getParentObject();

def parentStartDate = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(startDateField)
def parentEndDate = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(endDateField)

Date startResult = null
Date endResult = null
def startResultTimeStamp
def endResultTimeStamp
Collection subTasks = parentIssue.getSubTaskObjects();
for(subtask in subTasks) {
def subTaskStartDate = subtask.getCustomFieldValue(startDateField) as Date
def subTaskEndDate = subtask.getCustomFieldValue(endDateField) as Date
if (startResult == null || (subTaskStartDate < startResult)){
startResult = subTaskStartDate
}
if (endResult == null || (subTaskEndDate > endResult)){
endResult = subTaskEndDate
}
}
if (parentStartDate != startResult && parentEndDate != endResult)
// return "${startResult} - ${endResult} for ${parentIssue} having Start ${parentStartDate} and End ${parentEndDate}"
parentIssue.setCustomFieldValue(parentStartDate, startResultTimeStamp)

This returns  (with the return line uncommented)  "2018-10-19 00:00:00.0 - 2018-12-05 00:00:00.0 for ITPROJECTS-518 having Start null and End null" which is what I expect. However the last line in the script is the one that is throwing the "Cannot find matching method" error. Anyone with ideas?

Hello Mike.
If you want to see, there some just done scripts in Groovy for this your requirement specifically to work with custom fields in tasks (like time spent or whathever) and sub-tasks and native fields in Jira.

You can look at: https://github.com/GTessarini/JiraAutomations

I hope help you!

Thanks @Gabriel Tessarini, I'll have a look. That wasn't some of what popped up when I was grepping Google for guidance (and is one of the next iterations that I'll be mucking about with)

@Gabriel Tessarini, I accepted YOUR answer as well as that addresses my next iteration on this festival. Much appreciated

Hello @Mike Rathwell

The thing is, that method getParentObject() returns Issue object, that is immutable class and doesnt have set methods. So you need to get MutableIssue first, like this. And do not forget to update issue to store changes.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import java.sql.Timestamp;
import java.util.Date.*

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
def startDateField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11014");
def endDateField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject("customfield_11015");
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

Issue sourceIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("ITPROJECTS-295");
MutableIssue parentIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(sourceIssue.getParentObject().getKey())

def parentStartDate = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(startDateField)
def parentEndDate = parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(endDateField)

Date startResult = null
Date endResult = null
def startResultTimeStamp
def endResultTimeStamp
Collection subTasks = parentIssue.getSubTaskObjects();
for(subtask in subTasks) {
def subTaskStartDate = subtask.getCustomFieldValue(startDateField) as Date
def subTaskEndDate = subtask.getCustomFieldValue(endDateField) as Date
if (startResult == null || (subTaskStartDate < startResult)){
startResult = subTaskStartDate
}
if (endResult == null || (subTaskEndDate > endResult)){
endResult = subTaskEndDate
}
}
if (parentStartDate != startResult && parentEndDate != endResult)
// return "${startResult} - ${endResult} for ${parentIssue} having Start ${parentStartDate} and End ${parentEndDate}"
parentIssue.setCustomFieldValue(parentStartDate, startResultTimeStamp)
issueManager.updateIssue(user, parentIssue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)

Thanks, @Mark Markov. I'll give that a shot. Please ignore some of the other detritus in that script as it is full of debuggish/try this crap.

Question - should i push a timestamp or a date into the CF? I can do either; use date for the compares (lazy, i know but works) and timestamp to populate the field.

Mike Rathwell Community Leader Nov 21, 2018

@Mark Markov That was exactly the ticket. I tried Mutable BUT thinking back, I declared it wrong. You solved this issue for me

Mark Markov  can you please help me in writing a script where , when subtask custom field gets updated same should reflect in parent task aslo.

Looking forward to your help

Hello @Tanu Priya , I don't know if you already have help in your project, but in my code repository for this Jira Automations, I have some scripts that may be applied to your need. Check it out:
