Automatically Increment Custom Field on Transition

Greetings.  I have looked around and found pieces of code but no real solution.  I don't care if it is scriptrunner or not but I am open to suggestions.

In the workflow I want to add a post function to a few of the transitions that go to a number custom field and increase it by 1.  So if it was blank before it becomes 1.  if it is 3 it becomes 4.


This seems rather simple but I am hitting my head on the wall of what to do.  I am on JIRA 7.6 and ScriptRunner 5.5.2 .  Again, open to suggestions.

That was outdated, this is actual working code with code comments!



import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue;

//Update "Churn Number" to the name of your custom field.
String customFieldName = "Churn Number";
DefaultIssueChangeHolder changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

//Update "Churn Number" to the name of your custom field.
CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Churn Number");

//NOTES: If the current value is 0 use 0 not null. If it is a real number use the real number.
def currValue = (Double)cf.getValue(issue) ?: 0
def newValue = currValue+1;
cf.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(currValue,newValue), changeHolder);

Do you have a script that works on Jira Cloud? When I put that code in it shows errors for all the import statements and fails when the transition occurs.

Figured it out in case anyone else has the same issue. This is the script:

def currValue = (Double)issueInput.fields.customfield_10065 ?: 0 issueInput.fields.customfield_10065 = currValue + 1.0

You can get the field ID from the URL when you edit the field.
