How to fetch the Priority of current issue in JIRA?

Requirement: This will be applicable for all the issues of a given project. There is a customfield Promised Delivery Date in the form. Based on the priority of an issue, this field has to be enabled/disabled for the user.

When the priority = Critical, the customfield has to be disabled. Otherwise it will remain enabled. Hence I wanted a groovy script to fetch the current issue's priority. I have done with the enable/disable part.

Not tried it recently, but assuming you're using Behaviours, then

def prio = getFieldByName('Priority')
def prioValue = prio.value

Should get you the name of the current value selected for priority

Hi @Pranita Warik 

Normally depending on where you are getting it from, you can either use:

issue.priority //When you are doing this from the workflow
issue.getPriority() //every where even the above defaults to this in reality.
