We have an OnDemand version of JIRA and I need to update some custom fields during my workflow. I came across this snippet sentence:
"Update Issue Field: Note: This post function cannot update custom fields and must be positioned after the other optional post functions."
It says THIS post function cannot update custom fields, but I'm hoping beyond hope there is a work around?
Thank you @ALL !!
So, in my investigation to utilize JIRA Utilities Suite, I found that our OnDemand version had not ENABLED the Add On.
Spoke with our Sr Admin, we enabled the Add On and viola!
Thank you ALL for teaching this man to fish. I was getting ready to write my first plugin to get this done, and as you all stated over and over... It was already in our version.
To sum up:
If you have JIRA Ondemand and you do NOT have the option to update custom fields in your Post Function options, then:
Go to Manage Add Ons and enable JIRA Utilities Suite.
There are some addons available in OnDemand that can update custom fields. From memory, the Jira Suite Utilities is available and can do some quite clever stuff with them (not just hard coded value, but "now" in date/time fieds and "current user" in user fields.
If you like and familiar with developing a jira plugin, I recommend to build your own plugin.
Jira provides a Workflow Module which is capable of creating workflow postfunction.
As @Nick suggest you can use Update Issue Custom Field Post-Function from JSU plugin and it is preinstalled on Ondemand instance
