Hi again everyone,
I'm a new user of groovy, and I'm trying to learn its ins and outs but even this simple task has me stumped... I'm trying to concatenate a subtask's summary with it's created date.
From what I've read in Jira documentation / groovy documentation I'm using the following:
String summary = "issue.get("summary")" + " - " + "issue.get("created")
Can someone please help me understand what I'm doing wrong?
Type this code in your console and hit run.
IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = im.getIssueObject("SD-18") //Change Issue Key
return issue.summary + " - " + issue.created
Of course change the Issue key.
I hope it will help you.
I don't know that there is a get(field) method like you're using, but there are ones such as getSummary(), getCreated(), etc. (which can be shortened to issue.summary and issue.created, etc.).
You've also got your double quotes a bit mixed up. Try the following, and see https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/7.6.1/com/atlassian/jira/issue/Issue.html for more information about what you can do.
String newSummary = issue.summary + " - " + issue.created
That'll get the string you seek, and then you'll then need to update your issue with the revised summary.
Hi again @Payne
We are using a groovy script listener via the "workflow magic box" plugin in order to append the creation date to all parent/subtask tickets for our Jira data center instance.
When I input the exact code above into the groovy script editor, it works, but not when we try to trigger the code via a "issue.created" event, it doesn't append the creation date. (see screenshot)
Ah, OK. You're merely assigning the concatenated string to a variable, but you're not updating the issue. You need to do something like:
issue.summary = newSummary
That may work, but if not, you need to do something like that. That's what I said in my original response: That'll get the string you seek, and then you'll then need to update your issue with the revised summary.
