I need help with updating scripts for Scriptrunner for Jira upgrade

Carmen Bullock Nov 08, 2016

I have scripts that I did not create in JIRA that need to be updated for the JIRA 7 migration. I don't know Groovy. I was wondering if there is someone that can walk me through one of the scripts so I can understand what the changes are and how to test the script. Here is one of the scripts:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.mail.Email
import com.atlassian.mail.server.MailServerManager
import com.atlassian.mail.server.SMTPMailServer
import java.text.DateFormat
import groovy.time.TimeCategory
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
MailServerManager mailServerManager = componentManager.getMailServerManager()
SMTPMailServer mailServer = mailServerManager.getDefaultSMTPMailServer()
if (mailServer) {
    def x = getCustomFieldValue("Severity")
    def msg = ""
    def today = new Date()
    def plainFormatter = DateFormat.instance
    def created = issue.getCreated()
    use( TimeCategory ) {
        switch (x) {
            case 'Code Red':
                msg = created + 3.days
            case 'Critical':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'High':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'Medium':
                msg = created + 7.days
            case 'Low':
                msg = created + 21.days
                msg = ""

The first tip is to use the \{code\} macro, that makes it much easier to read.

I don't see any particular problem with this script field, other than some of the variables aren't used. Doesn't it work?

Pretty much everything you need should be at

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 ...
