How to script a default issue type for a project

I am trying to use behavior in  script runner to default to a particular issue type. However, when I try to do with following code, though it defaults to the required issue type "ABC", it does not allow any other issue type to be selected. Please let me know what modifications are required in the code.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE
def constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()
    def queryIssueType = constantsManager.getAllIssueTypeObjects().find { == "ABC" }
   def  IssueType = getFieldById(ISSUE_TYPE)

Why not use the default issue setting in the issue type scheme for the project?

Because as per design of jira, it remembers the last Issue Type you used and defaults to this one the next time you create an issue.

Hello Rajat,

You were able to get it done?

I am no expert on scriptrunner but I think what this code is doing is setting the value of the dropdown to your issue type. This would overwrite the values (i.e. all your issues types) that were previously there.

But what you really want is to set the default option value for the drop down which is done via the optionsManager.

I think you should try to do what is described here.


You can't really do this with behaviours. Every time the issue type changes, it will load and apply any behaviours for that project and issue type combination. This is because you can assign behaviours to just certain issue types.

So when you change the issue type, it fires, and changes it back.
