transition linked issue

I need to make a transition on a linked issue after pass the conditions.

import org.apache.log4j.Category
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.util.JiraUtils
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.UserMessageUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def Category log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy")

IssueLinkManager linkMgr = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
WorkflowTransitionUtil tx = (WorkflowTransitionUtil) JiraUtils.loadComponent(WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class)

for (IssueLink link in linkMgr.getInwardLinks( {
def linkedIssue = link.getDestinationObject();
if ( != "is blocked by") {
if (link.getSourceObject().getProjectObject().getKey().contains("OR")){
if (link.getSourceObject().getStatus().getName().contains("Blocked")){
tx.setIssue((MutableIssue) linkedIssue);

catch (Exception e) {
UserMessageUtil.error('ERROR: ')

 Always the code pass to the catch. I don't know what is the problem. the action id is the correct. the execution log is empty.

Also I want to put in the code which user who performs the action. I don't know how to do it.

thanks in advance.

Some things that got into my head when I saw your code:

1- Check that you (or the user who will trigger this) are able to transition from Blocked making the transition which has the 921 id. 

2- Normally the UserMessageUtil.error('ERROR: ') gives me issues getting traces... You could try replacing it for return e.printStackTrace() to see some traces of the exception.

3- Maybe the problem is that your script doesn't passes the tx.validate() step, you should have more information about this if point 2 works for you.


To get which user performs the action, use this:

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