How to get the current issue after the issue is create?


Hi, I am using groovy script in post function to update the value of custom field after the issue creation transition. But I don't know how to get the created issue.

I know how to get the issue by its ID but I have to create script for every Issue created and I dont know how to do that.

There is an internal variable called issue. That is why you can just write


it will return the key of the created issue.

I have the following code in a post function on create transition

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserManager 
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def multiGroupCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Demo-Π.Σ.Κ.Ε. Assignable Groups") //multigroup picker custom field

def group1 = groupManager.getGroup("EYKE Group") //jira group
def group2 = groupManager.getGroup("Group_Epilogi_Proistamenon") //jira group
def group3 = groupManager.getGroup("ISO - Security Officers") //jira group

def groupList = [group1, group2, group3]

issue.setCustomFieldValue(multiGroupCf, groupList)

The use of issue keyword does not work and when I create a new issue I'm getting the following message:

"We can't create this issue for you right now, it could be due to unsupported content you've entered into one or more of the issue fields. If this situation persists, contact your administrator as they'll be able to access more specific information in the log file."


So, it seems that issue variable cannot be used to get the current issue.
