Someone knows if you can throw an event with script runner and process mails with Email this Issue


I need to throw an event with script listener on an issue updated event. Then afterwards, the event should be processed by Email this Issue with a given Template. In Email this Issue I already uploaded a template, notification and a context for this event.

I tried everything to throw an event but no mail gets sent and I don't know why nor can I figure out why in logs. I tried following code already to throw an event:

First try:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;

def aGroupChanged = event.changeLog.getRelated("ChildChangeItem").find { it.field == "aGroup" }

if (aGroupChanged) {"(" + event.issue.key + ") E-Mail gets sent")
ComponentAccessor.issueEventManager.dispatchEvent(10100L, event.issue, event.user, true)

Since this method is deprecated i tried something else, which I found in the community and modified it a bit:

import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventBundle
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventManager
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventBundleFactory
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;
import org.apache.log4j.Category;

Long EVENT_ID = new Long("10100")
ApplicationUser currentUser
IssueEventBundle eventBundle
def aGroupChanged = event.changeLog.getRelated("ChildChangeItem").find { it.field == "aGroup" }

JiraAuthenticationContext jiraAuthContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext()
IssueEventManager issueEventM = ComponentAccessor.getIssueEventManager()
IssueEventBundleFactory issueEventFactory = (IssueEventBundleFactory) ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueEventBundleFactory.class)

currentUser = jiraAuthContext.getLoggedInUser()
eventBundle = issueEventFactory.wrapInBundle(new IssueEvent (event.issue, null, currentUser, EVENT_ID))

if (aGroupChanged) {
issueEventM.dispatchEvent(eventBundle)"Issue: " + event.issue.key + " E-Mail sent");
} else if (!aGroupChanged) {"Issue: " + event.issue.key + " ERROR");

Some advices? Since I don't script or code very much I don't know what to do next, especially in the 2nd try, which is too complicated already for me. Thanks in advance
