JIRA EMAIL This Issue Question


I have been creating templates using the JETI plugin, however whenever I input the status field it only displays the status the issue is currently in. Can someone please tell me how to display the status the issue transitioned from with a red background and a strike through and the current status the issue transitioned to in green?

This kind of diff view of changed attributes could be rendered as below (I have extracted this from the JIRA email template)


#if ($changelog)
<table class="keyvalue-table">
 #if ($changelogauthor)
 #authorlinkkey($changelogauthor.key $linkstyle)
 #elseif ($changelogmetadata.actor)
 #emailHistoryMetadataParticipant($changelogmetadata.actor, true)
 #foreach ($changeitem in $changelog.getRelated("ChildChangeItem"))
   #if ($changeitem.getString("field").equals("description"))
   #set ($changelogItemIssueDescription = $changeitem)
     <th>$textutils.htmlEncode($velocityhelper.getFieldName($changeitem, $i18n)):</th>
     #set ($oldstringKey = "oldstring") #set ($newstringKey = "newstring")
     #set ($oldText = "") 
     #set ($newText = "")
     #set ($oldText = $velocityhelper.getPrettyFieldString($changeitem.getString("field"), $changeitem.getString($oldstringKey), $i18n, ""))
     #set ($newText = $velocityhelper.getPrettyFieldString($changeitem.getString("field"), $changeitem.getString($newstringKey), $i18n, ""))
     $!diffutils.diff($oldText, "background-color:${auiErrorBackgroundColour};text-decoration:line-through;", $newText, "background-color:${auiSuccessBackgroundColour};")

Thank you, I will add this to my template and get back to you if I have any problems.

I tried copy and pasting this code into my template and it did not work. Any suggestions?
