Howto get next status within postfunction

Hi,

Within a postfunction, I need to get both before and after status objects.

When I call issue.getStatusObject(), it gives me the current status object. However I also need the upcoming status object.

Is there a way to get this next status object?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

This is the exact code getting before and after steps


List<SimpleStep> currentSteps = (ArrayList<SimpleStep>)transientVars.get("currentSteps");

SimpleStep simpleStep = currentSteps.get(0);

int actionId = simpleStep.getActionId();

int beforeStepId = simpleStep.getStepId();

ActionDescriptor ad = workflow.getDescriptor().getAction(actionId);

int afterStep = ad.getUnconditionalResult().getStep();


I think you may just need to move your script down the order, so it fires after the transition has happened. Check the list of Post Functions for the transition in the workflow editor.

is this what you are looking?

def stepId = action.getUnconditionalResult()?.step
getWorkflowDescriptor().getStep(stepId)

check this

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/123793/when-transitioning-an-issue-how-can-you-get-the-target-status

you can get availble actions like this

IssueWorkflowManager issueWorkflowManager = ComponentAccessor
				.getComponentOfType(IssueWorkflowManager.class);
		
Collection<ActionDescriptor> actions = issueWorkflowManager
				.getAvailableActions(issue);

if my guess is correct, you are trying to auto transition issue to next state, if it is correct then i don't think it will work by using post function yu have to do it by using listener.

loads of discussions had in this forum just search like auto transition you will find lot of posts

Hi Rambanam,

Thanks for your answer. However I am not looking for auto transition.

All I need is just the state info.

For example, in "Start Progress" transition, the issue's status changes from "Open" to "In progress". In the post function, I need "In Progress" status object in order to calculate something.

Thanks again

Tuncay
