Scriptrunner adding web section to navigation bar

tom lister Community Leader Mar 24, 2019


I want to add menu to our navigation bar which will navigate to creating a service desk issue. I have followed the notes on creating a web section and web item using script fragments but I am not seeing a new menu item and can't see what I've missed. Anyone used script runner web fragments?

Screen shots of web section and two goes at web item...

Hello @tom lister

I am unable to reproduce your issue. As you can see in the following screenshot, I copied your first screenshot and the fragment appeared for me.

Are you using JIRA server? Which version of JIRA are you using?

Hi @Jean-Théo -Adaptavist- 

I tried this on 7.13 server on a macbook and 7.11 data centre on AWS.

I notice your field order on your config screen is different to mine.

I’ll try it again tomorrow

Hi @Jean-Théo -Adaptavist- 

also just noticed you are placing a web item on the nav bar. I was trying to put a web section on there with web items attached. I wanted a drop down menu of links. 

Is that incorrect?

Hi @Jean-Théo -Adaptavist- 

I can create a single web item that appears as a link on the nav bar.

Does scriptrunner allow me to create a drop down menu on the nav bar?

Hi @Jean-Théo -Adaptavist- 

The SDK docs say, if I’m understanding correctly, that I can use a web section to create a new tab on the navigation bar.

Then add my web items to it. 

Creating a script fragment web section on doesnt appear to work



I have a similar problem. I'm trying to add a web section and it doesn't show up in the menu (I tried and transitions locations). I can add web itemas wherever i want though. Im using Jira Server 7.13.1.

Fresh server , repeat test...

Trying to create a web-section to add a new menu drop down to navbar.

The following config has no visible effect ( although it's possible to add a new web-item but I want a drop down list of web-items).
