How to access ContentService or ContentPropertyService via ScriptRunner


I'm hoping someone can suggest how to achieve this. I want to use the ContentProperty to store some values for a Confluence page, but can't get a handle on either the ContentService or the ContentPropertyService.


I'm using Confluence 7.10.2 and ScriptRunner 6.21.0.

I can get an instance of both services via

@Field ContentService contentService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ContentService, 'apiContentService');

@Field ContentPropertyService contentPropertyService = ComponentLocator.getComponent ContentPropertyService;

using this, I can successfully create and add a new property via contentPropertyService.create( myNewProperty )

however I'm unable to use .find to access the ContentPropertyFinder as

ContentId contentId = ContentId.of(pageId)

def found = contentPropertyService.find().withContentId(contentId).fetchOne();

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method:  com.sun.proxy.$Proxy260.withContentId() is applicable for argument types: ( values: [ContentId[id=19071593}]

And I have a similar issue with ContentService

def page = contentService.find().withId(ContentId.valueOf(pageId as String)).fetchOneOrNull();

which crashes out in a similar manner

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: com.sun.proxy.$Proxy217.withId() is applicable for argument types: ( values: [ContentId{id=19071593}].

Possible solutions: with(groovy.lang.Closure), with(boolean, groovy.lang.Closure), wait(), find(), wait(long), find([Lcom.atlassian.confluence.api.model.Expansion;)

If I try and call .find with null or an Expansion, I get

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: interface com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.content.ContentService$ContentFinder is not visible from class loader


I believe my issue is due to Spring/autowire and Groovy's proxy getting in the way of each other but I'm at a loss as to how to resolve this.

For anyone else who has this issue, the answer appears to be to explicitly set the Expansions, which where trial-and-error.


def found = contentPropertyService.find(new Expansion('content'), new Expansion('version'))


does the trick

what is propertyKey? is it the space key?
