What are the ways to store value (variables) persistently in groovy?

I know about 

import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.OSPropertyPersister

def pluginSettings = OSPropertyPersister.getPluginSettings()

def key = "key"
def value = "my-value"

// save value against key
pluginSettings.put(key, value)

// retrieve value for key
def savedValue = pluginSettings.get(key)

But is there any other way to store data for later use in scripts? For example suppose I have a counter which is incremented for a specific kind of issue and I want to read it later...

Hi there,

I presume this data you wish to store is not in context of An issue or A project, but rather for the whole instance?

In that case, have you considered adding a table tot the Jira (or other accessible) database?

From groovy you could then access this data, this KB article should help you on your way:

Let me know if this helps!




This is exactly what I am looking for. Is there a suggested way or guideline to add tables tot Jira database?


Just creating tables in the Jira DB is strongly discouraged, since Jira will probably ignore these tables during upgrades etc ...

A few options:
