scriprunner get checkbox field value in workflow condition

Hi all, 

i've got a checkbox with values 'Yes', or 'No' and I'd like to execute a postfunction only if set to 'Yes'.  I've tried both of the statements below and neither works:

cfValues['SAR BI Reporting']?.value == 'Yes'
cfValues['SAR BI Reporting'] == 'Yes'


Thank you,

You can examine the data in your log and find out the best way forward with something like this: cfValues['SAR BI Reporting'] cfValues['SAR BI Reporting'].getClass()

Depending on what the second line gives you, you could lookup that class in the API documentation and figure out how to campare the value.

But from memory, I think checkbox returns an array. As a checkbox field with yes and no value, the results may be

  • ['Yes']
  • ['No']
  • ['Yes','No'] if both are checked

So you could try:

cfValues['SAR BI Reporting']?.contains('Yes')

Thank you. That sounds right. Would you know if there is a way to validate these statements (besides executing the workflow).

No, because the cfValue[] is a construct created by scriptrunner and only in workflows.

So there is no way to use that construct in the console or elsewhere.

You could create a temporary transition that does nothing (from any state to itself) and only output the value of your checkbox field to the log.
