I've written a ScriptRunner event handler, how do I enable it and know it is working?


Here is the sctipt. I added logging but I'm not seeing anything."eWebRequest Form Event Fired")

import com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page

def event = event as PageEvent

Page page = event.getPage()
Space space = page.getSpace()

if (page.getSpace() != 'eWebProjects') {"eWebRequest Form Event - 1")

// Is the page-type eWebRequest?
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLink
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkService
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.confluence.ConfluenceApplicationType
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import groovy.json.JsonBuilder

//import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.CommentManager

def ApplicationLink getPrimaryConfluenceLink() {
def applicationLinkService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ApplicationLinkService.class)
final ApplicationLink conflLink = applicationLinkService.getPrimaryApplicationLink(ConfluenceApplicationType.class);

def confluenceLink = getPrimaryConfluenceLink()
assert confluenceLink // must have a working app link set up

def authenticatedRequestFactory = confluenceLink.createAuthenticatedRequestFactory()

// Get create content response body as a map
def contentResponse = authenticatedRequestFactory
.createRequest(Request.MethodType.POST, "rest/api/content/" + + "/page-type?")
.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
.executeAndReturn(new ReturningResponseHandler<Response, Map>(){
Map handle(Response response) throws ResponseException {
if (response.statusCode == HttpURLConnection.HTTP_NOT_FOUND)
{"eWebRequest Form Event - 2")

if (response.statusCode != HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {"eWebRequest Form Event - 3")
throw new Exception("Get page-type failed: " + response.getResponseBodyAsString())

return response.getEntity(Map)

if (contentResponse.value != 'eWebRequest')
{"eWebRequest Form Event - 4")

// TESTING ONLY"eWebRequest Form Event Success")

If you haven't read over it already this section of the documentation contains a lot of useful information about custom event handlers, including how to write and use them. I would recommend reading it over. 

For testing, if you haven't done so already, try setting up a development environment with logging for your instance. It will making the debugging process much easier in the long run.

Please let me know if you have any further questions!
