Why does script end when running createIssueObject()? Edited

I have a Task that has a series of subtasks that I am using as a template to setup recurring tasks through the ScriptRunner Escalation Services.

The script does the following things:

  1. Clone the template issue
  2. Load the Template issue's subtasks into a Collection
  3. Loop through the Collection to create clones of the teamplate subtasks and set the parent object to the new clone of the template

The issue that I am having is everytime this command runs the script stops processing. I end up with a subtask created that has no parent, and non of the other subtasks are created. Why does the script end on the createIssueObject?

Issue clonedTask = issueManager.createIssueObject(subtask.getReporter(), newIssueParams);

Full script below

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFactory;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.issue.Issue;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;

def date = new Date();
def sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");

def authenticationContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext();
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager();
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
IssueFactory issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory();


Issue targetParent = issueManager.getIssueByCurrentKey("SPECIFIC_ISSUE_KEY");
def subtaskList = targetParent.getSubTaskObjects();

for (subtask in subtaskList) {

def subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager();
def constantManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager();
MutableIssue newSubtask = issueFactory.getIssue();


def newIssueParams = ["issue" : newSubtask] as Map<String,Object>;
issue clonedTask = issueManager.createIssueObject(subtask.getReporter(), newIssueParams);

//^ creates the subtask but it is not linked to a parent because processing stops. The code below does not run. WHY??

subTaskManager.createSubTaskIssueLink(issueManager.getIssueByCurrentKey("SPECIFIC_ISSUE_KEY")), clonedTask, subtask.getReporter(); "subtask ${newSubtask.summary} created.";

Hi Cody!

This is most likely related to a code exception, which means that your code is failing, not catching an exception, and hence, the execution is stopped. 

Have you checked the code for an exception?



Oops - I meant to reply.


 Thanks Daniel.

That is why I am so stumped- There are no exceptions. I put the entire script into a try-catch block and no exception gets thrown. The script just ends and reports that is completed successfully.

Accidental post.

I am trying to clone issue with below code, 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.LazyLoadedOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory()
def subtaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager()
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("SWBLD-341710")
log.error("SOURCE ISSUE KEY: ${issue.getKey()}")

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def newIssue = issueFactory.cloneIssueWithAllFields(issue)
Map<String,Object> newIssueParams = ["issue":newIssue] as Map<String,Object>
log.debug("after hello")
issueManager.createIssueObject(currentUser, newIssueParams)
//def cloned = issueManager.createIssueObject(currentUser, newIssueParams)


It is creating issue with the date of cloned issue. Is there anyway that issue can be created with current date
