scriptrunner behaviours - not working - does anybody have simple sample/example?


we're having trouble just trying simple behaviour example - not sure if we're missing something very obvious

for example, can we set up simple behavior (read-only) on a non-custom field?

we tried using "voting" field - and under behaviors just adding 'read-only' slider (on/off) - set to "on" - and picking 'voting' field

maybe 'voting' is a bad choice - since it looks like out of the box - voting maybe doesn't let the ticket creator change/click the 'vote for this issue' - but it's available in the field picker - so would guess this is ok


anyway - how to make a regular field "read-only" using behaviors feature of scriptrunner plugin? is server side code needed? the slider "read-only" would seem to mean when set to on - it would be able to do that without code? some other postings suggest needing to 'enable' all features of script runner plugin - but there doesn't appear to be such a button/widget? but we're probably doing something wrong...

@new jira user As far as I have worked with Behaviours, It works in screens like Edit, Create, View, other transition screens, I have here made the Summary to be Read-only and it works perfectly.b1.PNGb2.PNG

I'm also facing issues. I want a custom field to be read-only except for those in a particular group.

I have ProjectX, Epic issue type in the Mappings section.

I have Optional, Readonly, Shown as you show in your screen shot.

I have a Condition:

  • Except
    • Current user in group (GROUPA, where I am the only member)

That should mean for ProjectX, for Epics (the only context for the custom field, too), the custom field MyID should be read only to everyone except me because I'm the only member of GROUPA.

People are still able to edit the field, though.

Hi @Raleigh ,

Clearly your requirement and @new jira user are totally different. Here He asked only to make a system field to make it read-only based only with the help of Behaviours in Scriptrunner, and no server-side scripts are necessary for that. For your requirement as you stated above, you have to write a script that can get the info of the group members in the particular group as required, and then the condition should be set as if the current user is not a member of the given group then make it not-editable. Maybe this can help.

**Note: Only writing a condition in a script will work, it can be simply done via the UI part of Behaviours when our requirements have an exclusivity.
