Behaviours Plugin Bug? add two behaviours on same field will overwrite previous one?

my jira version is jira 4.4.1.

for example,i add two behaviours on the same filed "resolution":sw,st

1 i add "When Resolve Issue" condition on sw,and add script to 'sw'

log.debut("\nsw not read only\n")

2 and add "When Close Issue,Reopen Issue" condition on st,and add script to 'st'

FormField resolutionField=getFieldById("resolution")
log.debug("\nst read only---\n")

then no matter i resolve,close or reopen an issue,the field "resolution" is always displayed "read only"

when i delete the 'sw' script.the behaviour is normal.resolving an issue ,"resolution" will not display read only.closing or reopening an issue will make "resolution" read only

it's so strange! as if "sw" and "st" script are all executed one by one in order.later behaviour will overwrite former behaviour. because "st" is later than "sw" in order,so "sw" might present the final result.

I did not get why you need two scripts on same field , If you feel its a bug you can raise it on select JBHV project .

You will have to put your logic in a single script for now .


i write two script on same field because i want to dispaly different thing when on diffent action screens.

i find the Behaviour Plugin can support workflow action condition.

so i separate them according to different workflow action.
