scriptrunner post function conditions not working in jira 7.1.9

We upgraded from 6.4.5 to 7.1.9 and most of my script runner post functions are not working properly.

I have fixed the errors for the conditions per new APIs, and the scripts all say they run successful, but they do not. There are no error logs. 

Example: Create Sub-task

Condition: issue.getComponents() == "DevEx"

Target Issue Type = Sub-Task

Subtask Summary = Create XYZ thing


There are no errors found. No failures in execution. And there is also NO sub-task created either.

This is not the only place where the ScriptRunner seems to be messing up post upgrade.

Are you sure you've updated your scripts? getComponents returns a Collection<ProjectComponent>, not a string, so that test for equality will always return false, which might explain why it says it is running successfully, but not actually executing the script.

Also that never returned a string, that could never have worked, it would always have returned false. You want:

"DevEx" in issue.components*.name



That method for component was not working after upgrading to 7. That's what it used to be for the condition. I finally figured it out late yesterday after much trial and error.

Fix version condition seems to need an update too, since it is also not being interpreted correctly after upgrade, where whatever I had in 6 worked great.

I find it a little frustrating that such common, heavily used options are not in the example list. I'm not a coder...

! doesn't seem to be supported any longer either

can you attach a screenshot?

Hi Kate,

We are planning to upgrade, and we are extensively using script runner, so your post is really interesting.  

What is debug logging on com onresolve spitting out ?
