Check Field is available for a given Issue Type using ScriptRunner Cloud

I want to check that a particular field is available for a given Issue Type (called Task), however this is proving tricky.

I am using the api /rest/api/2/issue/createmeta which should return a list of fields and their meta data.

For simplicity, I've written a script that checks that the field 'summary' is available (since I know it always will be, and is in fact the first field returned).  My script is:

 

def issueMeta = get('/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=XXX&issuetypeNames=Task&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields')
.asObject(Map)
assert issueMeta.status == 200
def versionField = issueMeta.body.projects.issuetypes.fields.find { it.key == "summary"}
logger.info("version is ${versionField}")

The logger is returning "version is null".

Any help to work out what I'm doing wrong would be very much appreciated.

Hi Greg,

I think the problem is that issueMeta.body.projects.issuetypes is an array, so you need to select the first element (or search for the element that matches the required issue type name).

def issueMeta = get('/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=XXX&issuetypeNames=Task&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields')
.asObject(Map)
assert issueMeta.status == 200

def versionField = issueMeta.body.projects.issuetypes.find { it.name == 'Task' }.fields.find { it.key == "summary"}
logger.info("version is ${versionField}")

I hope that helps,

Jon

Thanks, that was indeed the problem. Strictly speaking 'projects' is an array too, so the working line appears to be

def versionField = issueMeta.body.projects.find { it.key == 'XXX' }
        .issuetypes.find {it.name == "Task"}
        .fields.find {it.key == "summary"}

Ah yes, well spotted smile

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
