Memory and Scriptrunner


are there any known issues with using scriptrunner and memory usage?

We're getting outofmemory, and I know there could be lots of reasons, and just want to check in for scriptrunner/groovy issues. We have a lot of scripted fields and script workflow actions which will be invoked many times.

Are there any best practices for writing scripts?

First of all check if you have varialbe declare into loops. For exmple

for(Issue subtask: issue.getSubTaskObjects()){
    CustomField field = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("field name")

It is better to change to:

CustomField field = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("field name");
for(Issue subtask: issue.getSubTaskObjects()){

More - try not to use variable which used only once. For example:

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject()

It is better to use 

Issue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject()

Thanks Vasily, I'll check through our code
