When I use the API setFieldOptions(...) for a Custom Version Picker Field - previous value is delete

I have a custom field of type Version Picket (multiple values).

I have a behaviour that initiate the options for this field (for example when you edit the ticket).

The possible options for that field are versions from another Jira project - this is working fine.

The problem is when you have value in this field and edit the ticket again - the previous value of the field is being deleted.

Hi @Eran Flom

Could you please specify which version of ScriptRunner you are using when testing this?

Also, could you please share your behaviour configuration and code for better understanding?

Thank you and Kind Regards,


I am using Adaptavist ScriptRunner for JIRA version 6.41.0 (on a Jira server v8.16.0)


The behaviour is set with all the default values (Use Validator Plugin is unchecked and there is no Guide workflow).

The code is in the Initialiser (to be activated when the edit screen is entered). This is the code:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.VersionManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version

// Specify the master project - to get the versions from
def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager()
def project = projectManager.getProjectObjByName("Proj A")

// Get all the vesrions from "Proj A"
def versionManager = ComponentAccessor.getVersionManager()
def List<Version> versions = versionManager.getVersions(project)

def versionOptionsFld = getFieldByName("Version Picker Field Name")
