Restricting Available Issue Types

I need to limit the creation of some issuetypes in a project and for users of a specific role.
I used this script but it still gives me an error.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE

def projectRoleManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectRoleManager)
def allIssueTypes = ComponentAccessor.constantsManager.allIssueTypeObjects

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def issueTypeField = getFieldById(ISSUE_TYPE)

def remoteUsersRoles = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoles(user, issueContext.projectObject)*.name
def availableIssueTypes = []

if ("Users" in remoteUsersRoles) {
availableIssueTypes.addAll(allIssueTypes.findAll { in ["Bug"] })

if ("Developers" in remoteUsersRoles) {
availableIssueTypes.addAll(allIssueTypes.findAll { in ["Task"] })

Your script works fine for me (tweaking the user roles and issue types to match my environment). What sort of error are you receiving?

The errors are of this type.
what should i change?

Hi Micaela, 

I think Issue_TYPE should be all capitals instead : ISSUE_TYPE. Otherwise just save the script as is, ignore the warnings/errors.


Even putting all caps on does not work.
This is the error:

You are not supposed to run this script in script console, but instead create a behaviour linked to the "Issue Type" field.

Then it should work fine (because issueContext will exist at execution time).


Ok, i'll try.

What should I change to be able to run the script only for a specific project?

Antoine Berry Community Leader Apr 16, 2019

Just configure the behaviour so it applies only to the specific project (Add Mapping). :)


now i have this errore:

Error script 3.png

Antoine Berry Community Leader Apr 16, 2019

You are missing a "," between user and issueContext. Also as I said you need to create a behaviour (GG > Behaviours)


Thanks, it works now, but this solution does not work with jira JIRA Software 7.10.0 while it works with version 7.9.0.
Can anything be done?

This is beyond my knowledge, you would need to contact someone from adaptavist (raise a support ticket).
