Since Jira 8.x, Scriptrunner JiraUtils.loadComponent(WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class) is deprecated

With Scriptrunner in a Postfunction of a worflow, I use the JiraUtils.loadComponent(WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class) to do a workflow transition. But since release 8.x, this method is deprecated.

I tried to use JiraUtils.loadComponent("workflowTransitionUtil", WorkflowTransitionUtilFactoryImpl.class ) where workflowTransitionUtil is the Class Name. But I get this error: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: workflowTransitionUtil. I tried many values without any success

Any idea which Class Name should I use ?

Hi @Cedric Delavy 

Here you have an example:

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.TransitionOptions

Issue issue
Integer actionId = 61 // The transition ID

IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
ApplicationUser currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
TransitionOptions transitionOptions = new TransitionOptions.Builder()

IssueService.TransitionValidationResult result = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,

if (result.isValid()) {
issueService.transition(currentUser, result)
} else {
log.warn result.getErrorCollection().getErrors()

Thank you very much, this works perfectly
