Script runner - version selection

A beginner - question regarding the script runner.
The code below correctly returns the version with the highest ID (the last created version). 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

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

if (getActionName() != "Create Issue") {

def versionManager = ComponentAccessor.getVersionManager()
def versions = versionManager.getVersions(issueContext.projectObject)
if (versions)

How to properly enhance this script to show the last created version, but only taking versions that start with / that have, e.g. "RC_*" in their name? 

I'm hoping for your help after many hours invested in learning and testing methods proposed for slightly different cases - which unfortunately returned () for me.

Thanks a lot!

Hi @Ellie M_

For your requirement, you could add a basic if/else filter to your code as shown below:-

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

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

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours behaviours

def versionManager = ComponentAccessor.versionManager
def affectedVersions = getFieldById(AFFECTED_VERSIONS)

def versions = versionManager.getVersions(issueContext.projectObject)

def filteredVersions = [] as List<Long>

versions.each {
if("RC_")) {


Please note, this sample code is not 100% exact to your environment. Hence, you will need to make the required modifications.

Below is a print screen of the versions available for testing:-


Below is a print screen of the sample test. As expected, the latest RC version is selected.


I hope this helps to solve your question. :)

Thank you and Kind Regards,


It absolutely helped, Ram!
With some fine-tuning after testing, it now perfectly serves the need. 

Thank you so much for the prompt help. Much appreciated!
