How do I get the value of issuetype[ScriptRunner]

arno March 12, 2024

Hi all

We are writing a behaviours recently. We want to implement different question types and the user can see different option values in the custom fields. However, I found that my code did not work. Did I not get the correct issuetype? Our code is as follows

def field = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def department = getFieldByName("Department")
def value = field.getValue()

if (value == 'story'){

This is how you get the value of the Issue Type in a string format so you can run your if statement against it:


def issueType = underlyingIssue.getIssueType().name
if (issuetype == 'Story')
I don't know off the top of my head whether this is case-sensitive, but I always assume that it is.
