Change custom field depending on the value of another custom field

I need to make a transition (Open > Backlog) and change a custom field "time" depending on the value of the custom field "module".

Example that works with Script Runner:


def cfsat = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects (issue) .find { == 'Module'}
def module = issue.getCustomFieldValue (cfsat)
def time = ''
switch (module) {
	case 'Satelite - AUD': A: {
		time = 'timeaud'
	case 'Satelite - Conector': B: {
		time = 'timeconector'
	case 'Satelite - Consulta': C: {
		time = 'timeconsulta'


But Script Runner is now paid to work with Jira 7. So, I installed Automation JIRA plugin but it does not make the conditions: switch, if..else, etc.

Some help to make a transition (Open > Backlog) and change custom field (time) depending on the value of another custom field (modulo) ?

                  Currently I have only tested against Script Runner

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.*;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue as ModifiedValue;
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
//UserManager userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager();
IssueFactory issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory();
//User user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
//SubTaskManager subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager();
//IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager();
//IssueLinkTypeManager issueLinkTypeManager = (IssueLinkTypeManager)ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(IssueLinkTypeManager.class)
MutableIssue mIssue = issueFactory.getIssue();
Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("SRT-8");
def source = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_14700");
//return tgtField;
sourceValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(source)
//return sourceValue;
if (sourceValue*.value.contains("Satelite"))
    def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_14701");
    def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
    tgtField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField), "some new value"),changeHolder);
  • Don't know other plugins which can do the same


Hi Chander Inguva,

I already have a solution with Script Runner (example above) in Jira 6.3.15. But it is no longer free.

I need a free solution for Jira 7. Any help?
