I am using groovy script as a post function on issue creation to set a few user picker fields. It works fine and I see the fields updated after issue creation is done. However if I try to use these fields in consequent post function in the same transition (create) they appear to be null. For example I tried to copy updated field or send email to user set by groovy but fields reported to be null. So it looks like fields updated by groovy script is not visible for the subsequent post function in the same transition. Is there any reason for that or am I doing something wrong ?
IIt sounds like the data isn't being saved and/or you are loading the original issue in the second post function.
Make sure you save the updates in the post function (maybe try a reindex too if that fails).
and try defining your issue this way. This one resolved a lot of my issues similar to this one in older versions.
MutableIssue issue = (MutableIssue) issue;
I'm storing issue with issue.store() and I did use MutableIssue. In my postfunction list on creation I have
After issue is created I can see Approver 1 and 2 set as expected but not the Approver
Sorry I didn't see your reply. It is worth noting that in my experience issue.store() only really works on native fields and for custom fields you either have to update them with
myCF.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(myCF), ThisValue), changeHolder); }
or if you use the issue.setCustomFieldValue() then use
issueManager.updateIssue(userUtil.getUserObject('automation'), issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, true);
