During custom script post-function, use custom field to define what project to place cloned issue in

Hi there Atlassian community/ ScriptRunner peeps,

Hoping to get some assistance in figuring out how to properly code the following...

  • I created a Custom web section and a Constrained create issue dialog that creates a Support Request issue type (working perfectly with the behaviour I've got along with it)
  • Once the Support Request is 'ACCEPTED', I want to clone the Support Request as a task in the 'acceptors' project (I can't use the pre-scripted post function to clone issue since I need it to go to different projects based on info in the Support Request).
  • I have a custom project picker field that I'm using on the Support Request issue type screen (this is what I want to use to tell jira what project I want the cloned issue created in)
  • I've found code from SR that works if I define the issue I want cloned and the specific project to create it in
  • I've found code that doesn't quite work to take that a step further and use the project picker field to designate which project to create the cloned issue in

Here's the code that I've mushed together...and it's not working. Hoping someone can provide some add'l insight.

Thanks in advance

Why don't you use the built-in function and use the additional issue actions to change the project from the default selected in the form?

import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectImpl
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(sourceIssue).find { == 'Supporting Project'}
def project = sourceIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) as ProjectImpl


@Peter-Dave Sheehan - I didn't think it was possible since there is a drop down to choose the project...I'll give it a try. Thanks!

@Peter-Dave Sheehan  Thank you soooo much for providing that fix! Working perfectly - appreciate the assistance!

Like Peter-Dave Sheehan likes this

To be honest, I did not test this and wasn't 100% certain it would work. But based on the documentation saying "if you want to override some of the field values rather than have them inherited from the source issue you can specify that in the Additional Code" I was pretty confident it would work.
