That's pretty much it.
I need a custom field called "Last edited by:", or something like that.
I can not use post functions because I want the custom field updated even if there's no status transition. Also, I don't know how to capture the name of the author of the changes (i've used %current_user% in some post functions but as i've said post functions are aout of the question in this case).
Thanks in advance.
Using event.getUser() you can get the author of the event and then populate the custom field with that value
Thanks a lot for the quick response. I will check out the custom listener approach as I do not have the script runner plugin installed.
The issue would be that my coding skills are quite limited to using Matlab to solve physics problems so if there's any hope to avoid coding I would prefer that.
From https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver072/listeners-828787617.html I understand there's already a IssueEventListener (The main listener interface in JIRA, used whenever anything happens to an issue).
Could this be already what I need? I guess I'd have to modify it slightly but that's much easier than having to start from scratch.
If so... What would be the steps I should follow? How do I get that "com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventListener" and where do I save it so I can add the new listener (.../WEB-INF/lib?)?
Please excuse any nonsense I might have said and thanks again.
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
