Change absolute path of groovy script used in a post function in the database


We are upgrading our version of JIRA from 5 to 6. I have a bunch of groovy scripts used in a bunch of post functions and they have an absolute path of /app/jira/installation/jelly/SCRIPTNAME.groovy. My app admin told me that this location will change during the upgrade. Is there somewhere in the database I can go and update this information using a sql statement instead of going into every workflow and every post function and manually changing the path location? FYI... I would have used relative paths but I didn't know our paths would ever change.

I have code floating around that will create new drafts of every workflow and make some change, and then publish them, but I don't really recommend that approach unless you're pretty confident.

You could also update the descriptor column of the jiraworkflows table... and then restart. That might be ok if you have two or three workflows.

However I'd just tell your admin to create a symlink to the old location.

Thank you Jamie. I appriecate your help as always ;)!!!
