Script Runner not working when trying to trigger pipeline from jira through post functions


Hi All,

We have been trying to trigger pipeline in Jenkins from jira through post functions. As the script not executing while making a below grooving script through script runner plugin in the jira workflow

Use case :

In workflow While making transition from pipeline creation approval to pipeline creation

Code used :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def repoName = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Git repositories")
def pipelinename = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("CI BuildJob")
def techstackname = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Tech Stack")
def repoNameValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(repoName)?.value
def piplelineNamevalue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(pipelinename)?.value
def techstackNameValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(techstackname)?.value
def BUILD_TOKEN = "11268982e8e7f9d983d79b37bbeb5e4d1d"
def urlConnection = new URL("${BUILD_TOKEN}&GitRepoName=${repoNameValue}&techstack=${techstackNameValue}&name_job_create=${piplelineNamevalue}").openConnection()
def authString = "admin:11268982e8e7f9d983d79b37bbeb5e4d1d".getBytes().encodeBase64().toString()


urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic ${authString}")

urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json")


def postRC = urlConnection.getResponseCode();



Expected output :

Pipeline must be created at jenkins end with the above code 


Please note :We used the script on creating repo in github in validation part of the workflow through script runner it worked

Has anyone come across with the same scenario who could assist with this ?
