Automatically add a comment to jira issue via Script Runner

Automatically add a comment to jira issue

how can I do this via script runner? Jira server v8.5.0

1 answer

Hi @Helen Ahlberg you need to use postfunction. Snippet with the example code is here:

I want to have a pre-defined value comment on every transaction.

Not a comment after the action is done but during the transaction


My issue is moved from A to B and when pressing go_to_B I want a predefined value shown

ex: Enter the check you have done:

so that users can enter a comment after, And I want all of this to end up under Comment (not a custom field)

Is this possible?

Hi @Helen Ahlberg are you familiar with Behaviours (

You can use this code in Behaviours script

def predefinedComment = "some comment"

OK - but this will give me a pre-defined comment when just creating the issue?


We have behaviuor scripts that populate text in the Description field but this only happens with create issue.


My user want to have different pre-define commenttext when tranfering the issue in its workflow  - is this possible?
Question -> 


is this the Jira 'field' comment?

Yes, behaviours works on transitions similary. You can use conditions in your source code (transition name, target status name...)
