ScriptRunner Groovy script to read all the 'Linked Epic Issues' for a Script Field

Hi,

Using Script runner I'd like to read all the 'Linked Epic Issues' from the epic object and create a script Field to be used on my card layout. Basically I want to display an epic with all the Linked Epic Issues on my board.

 

Reading normal links is pretty simple:

 

JiraAuthenticationContext authContext = ComponentManager.getInstance().getJiraAuthenticationContext();

IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager();

LinkCollection linkCollection = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection(issue, authContext.getLoggedInUser());

Set<IssueLinkType> linkTypes = linkCollection.getLinkTypes();

return  linkCollection.getAllIssues().toString()

 

But how to read the Linked Epic Issues

 

 

CustomFieldManager cfManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();

  CustomField cf = cfManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Linked Epic Issues');

  return cf.getGenericValue().toString()

 

returns

[GenericEntity:CustomField][id,10201][project,null][fieldtype,null][default,null][issuetype,null][customfieldsearcherkey,com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner:textsearcher][description,null][name,Linked Epic Issues][customfieldtypekey,com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner:scripted-field]

 

I can see that there is API EpicLinkManagerImpl

https://docs.atlassian.com/greenhopper/6.3.6.1/com/atlassian/greenhopper/manager/issuelink/EpicLinkManager.html#getIssuesInEpic%28com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue%29

 

And even some examples

https://gist.github.com/ark09/c62a20c4cdae3f98df85

 

But

def epicLinkManagerImpl = getBean("epicLinkManagerImpl");

 

Returns

javax.script.ScriptException: groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: org.codehaus.groovy.jsr223.GroovyScriptEngineImpl.getBean() is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.String) values: [epicLinkManagerImpl]

Possible solutions: getAt(java.lang.String), get(java.lang.String), getClass(), eval(java.lang.String)

A stacktrace has been logged

 

And when I try to import the EpicLinkManagerImpl I'm getting

 

org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:

Script65.groovy: 19: unable to resolve class com.atlassian.greenhopper.manager.issuelink.EpicLinkManagerImpl

 @ line 19, column 1.

   import com.atlassian.greenhopper.manager.issuelink.EpicLinkManagerImpl

 

So the package is not visible from the Script Runner at all.

So How do I access the instance of the EpicLinkManagerImpl then?

Hi,

Strongly inspired by https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/263840 I got a list of issues with this script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.fugue.Option

if(issue.issueType.name=="Epic") {
    def epic = (Option)Option.option(issue)
    def epicLinkManagerImpl = getBean("epicLinkManagerImpl");
    issuesInEpic = epicLinkManagerImpl.getIssuesInEpic(issue)
    return issuesInEpic.toString()

}

return null

//Method to get the greenhopper bean instance
def getBean(String beanId)
{
    def ghPlugin         = ComponentAccessor.getPluginAccessor().getEnabledPlugin("com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira")
    def descriptor           = ghPlugin.getModuleDescriptor("greenhopper-launcher")
    def applicationContext     = descriptor.getModule().greenHopperCacheManager.applicationContext
    def beanInstance      = applicationContext.getBean(beanId)
    return beanInstance;
}

Wow!  I've been looking for a way to retrieve "Issues in Epic" for a long time - thanks Knud!

 

A pity Atlassian does not simply export EpicLinkManager service from OSGi plugin with @ExportAsService

## epic stories

#foreach($issue in $epicStory.getLinkedStories($xmlutils.escape($issue.key)))
