How can I read the value of KCF+ with live fields ?


I want to use live fields with Kepler Custom Fields Pro. I am using it as a Single Autocomplete. 

I have managed to watch my KCF+ field like this:

lfWatch("customfield_10700", {"issueType", "customfield_10700"}, "C:/jira/jira_home/silprograms/live_fields/hide_summary.sil", {"change"});

Obviously, my field is customfield_10700. The script dose call hide_summary.sil succesfully.

But my problem is that in hide_summary.sil, I can not read the value that has just been entered in the field. I have tried to use : argv["customfield_10700"] , but it was empty.

The value entered is read successfully in the post function but I need it in Live fields because I need to change the form based on the value entered. 

Any help is appreciated.

As I suggested here, try to add the custom field first in the related fields list.
For example, you can use the code below for main script:


lfWatch("customfield_10700",{"customfield_10700", "issueType"}, "C:/jira/jira_home/silprograms/live_fields/hide_summary.sil",{"change"});


Best regards,


Thanks. That did work.

Hi Sadek,

Try not to specify the events on lfwatch like below.

lfWatch("customfield_10700", {"issueType""customfield_10700"}, "C:/jira/jira_home/silprograms/live_fields/hide_summary.sil");



Thank you Eric for your response. But I have tried your suggestion and it did not work. I have tried many other ways and they did not work. The only one that did work was Raluca's suggestion above.

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 ...
