Hi! I am using Scriptrunner to create a sub-task via a workflow postfunction. My goal is to end up with a sub-task that's summary field is a combination of the parent's summary and the contents of a custom field. For example, the sub-task's summary field would look like this:
[Parent's summary field] - [Contents of a select list custom field]
Anyone know how to put that in groovy?
Thanks for your help!
Navigate > Add post function > Script Post-Function [ScriptRunner] > Create a sub-task
Fill in appropriate configurations, and under _Additional issue actions_:
def customField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Just text").first()
def parentIssue = issue.getParentObject()
issue.setSummary(parentIssue.getSummary() + "-" + parentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customField))
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply! I tried the above but received the following error:
2021-02-01 13:57:07,159 ERROR [workflow.AbstractScriptWorkflowFunction]: Workflow script has failed on issue NAM-3960 for user 'becky'. java.util.NoSuchElementException: Cannot access first() element from an empty List at Script78.run(Script78.groovy:8)
Any idea what the problem might be? Ok if not. My team ended up deciding not to carry the Summary field from the parent over to the child. So asking this question in the hopes of helping someone else in the future. :)
