Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your response, we would like to run it manually by Scriptrunner one time for now. Please let me know if there is a script.  

Hi.
I wrote a script for you.
I haven't tested it but please give it a try and Get back to me with the results.

Please make sure you first test it on a staging environment.

I cannot remember if scriptrunner supports outputs so you might have to tinker with the returns to see the results and such.

I always run my scripts in Riada Insights script console, I prefer it.

Hi Jeff, 
Thanks for the script. I tried to fix some errors but the script didn't update the issues.

Because of the error I just changed the for loop 

for (com.atlassian.jira.issue.DocumentIssueImpl issueDoc : searchResult.getIssues())

 to 


for (com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue issueDoc : searchResult.getIssues()) {
issues.add(issueManager.getIssueObject(issueDoc.getKey()))
}

Hi Sai,
It worked for you after that change?

If it did great!

Otherwise feel free to ask for assistance.

Regards,
Jeff

Hi Sai,
I would say the solution would depend heavily on how you want this to occur.
The different ways this could be triggered

  • Manual (you run the script)
  • Scheduled
  • When the issue is updated

If you could specify in better detail how you want this to run it would probably be easier to assist you.

Regards

Hi @Jeff Tomband 

Is possible to create a job that can daily(automatically scheduled) update the "PC-Status Evaluation" field with the values from "PC-Status"

PC-Status Evaluation - single select list

PC-Status - text field

 

 

Thanks!

Yes it is,
It's a bit more involved then what you did previously.

I'll write up a script for you on my lunch break.

Regards,
Jeff

@Jeff Tomband  much appreciated

Waiting for your code,

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Regards

Balaji 

I forgot to ask a few details from you.

So you have text field containing a word like "Active" or such.

You have a single select list where one of the options is "Active".
The select list should then select "Active" as it's value.

What happens if the text is "asdasdasdasd" and not something that exists in the list.

@Jeff Tomband 

Good question,

Actually team will know what to put in text field,

 

So there will limited users will be using the text field.

 

So we don't need to worry about that value that is not something which is does not exists in the single select list

 

Thanks!

Hi @Jeff Tomband 

Where should we insert the mentioned field,

 

Could you check the script, where we can find the custom field names

 

Thanks!

You set the IDs
names aren't dependable

//field to take the value from
def sourceFieldId = 12345;

//field to set the value in
def targetFieldId = 12345;

in the top section

@Jeff Tomband 

Thanks for the script but facing some errors

refer the screenshot.

 

Thanks!

Hi Balaji,
I tested the script successfully on my end.

If you could provide the detailed errors at the different locations and what version of jira you're using i might be able to assist you further.

@Jeff Tomband  we are using jira server - 8.8.1

Could you please send me any specific errors you're getting. Maybe you can see the specific errors by hovering over the red cross icon.

Hi @Jeff Tomband , I tried your script  and it's work really good when I use issues Keys.

Thank's for it ! 

 

However, if I use JQL search I have an error : 

"org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.typehandling.GroovyCastException: Cannot cast object 'DocumentIssueImpl[issueKey=ACTI-11]' with class 'com.atlassian.jira.issue.DocumentIssueImpl' to class 'com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue'"

Any Idea ?

I used really simple JQL as "project = ACTI" or "labels = test"

 

Best regards,

David
