Why does my script break re-indexing?

Hi team experts! This one took some time in finding the problem, and I know that you have the solution if I can just explain it well enough to understand.

The goal is to update a Scriptrunner scripted field using a common Custom Field between two Project Types.

Project A, Type 1 and Type 2 have a common field. The scripted field is on Type 1 and uses the common field to look up the value of a field that is only on Type 2. Confused?

In the script below, the Project is called PD4. Issue Type 1 isn't addressed because that is where the scripted field is. Issue Type 2 is called Control and the common Select List is called Family.

So for each record, the scripted field is using the value of Family to match the Control Issue Type that has the same value in Family. This is defined as query. Based on those results it takes the value of "Last Event Control" and defines it as last_event.

Somewhere in between the ////// marks is the part of the script that breaks re-indexing. I am not sure of all the options out there or if there is a better way to doing what we are trying to do. Any help would be appreciated.

// Is Must Apply earlier than Last Event

Hi @Todd Palermo ,

I know that it's not recommended to perform JQL queries in scripted field because the JQL queries are unavailable during the lock re-index.

You should check if the index is available in your scripted field, check this documentation

Great job! You did it! Thanks so much for your help!
