Scriptrunner email post-function issue URL

Tom Lister Community Leader Feb 03, 2020


I want to send an email using Scriptrunner Email Post Function. The email needs to contain the URL of the issue.

Is there a built in method to do this?

or do I have to form the link manually with Base URL / project code etc.

Hi @Tom Lister 

Issues don't have an "url" attribute. If you think about it, it would not be a good idea to store that in the db because the baseUrl and the application context could change.

So yeah, making a URL out of the baseURL and issue key is the only way to go as far as I know.

def baseUrl = ComponentAccessor.getApplicationProperties().getString(APKeys.JIRA_BASEURL)
def link = """<a href=

Hi @Peter-Dave Sheehan 

There are some built in methods for email template e.g. this provides a list of workflow actions in the email.


I was hoping for something similar for other utility functions. Is there a list of available functions.? No sign in the ScriptRunner documentation.

My next issue is how to stop the code snippet showing up in the email from the template as raw text.

And finding the right syntax for displaying the variable value.

I think I can try putting the code into the condition section.

this embedded syntax works for me


Probably a matter of preference, but I like to keep the template simple and put the more complex stuff in the condition where you get better syntax checking.
