Change the behavior of the "Clones an issue and links" script.

Is there a way to set dynamically the "Target Project field" when cloning and linking an Issue?

I mean, put a customField with all projects, and the analyst choose it from a list and the cloned issue will be set on that Target project.

Thanks for your answers in advance.

You should be able to set it in the "Additional code"...

issue.setProjectObject ( project )

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately my "project List" custom field it won't work as expected.
It return a weird kind of value =\

By the way, i'm used this:

def cfObj = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_11501')

def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfObj)

issue.setProjectObject (cfValue)

and, my custom field return This:

assert cfValue==cfObj
       |      | |
       |      | Project List
       |      false 

[id:10800, originalkey:CRW, description:, counter:76, name:Change Request, lead:039020, avatar:10011, assigneetype:3, key:CRW, url:]

What type of field is "Project List"? Is it a list of project keys or project names or what?

Either way, you need to get the project object, using Project Manager.

Hi Jamie.,
My Field its a "Project Picker (single project) "

I Think that it's a default Jira (6.1.5) Field.

Actually, i'll leave this 'solution' and i'll make a Workaround to this.

Thanks anyway.

Looks like that type returns a GenericValue and not a Project, in which case

issue.setProject (cfValue)

should work.

HI @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist],

 I am trying same in my post function "Additional Issue Action" tab

But it is throwing an error


How can I resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance


When i was trying a workaround i made it work.

Here are the code:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue; 
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();
CustomField customFieldProj = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Project List");

def projVal = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldProj)

issue.setProject (projVal)

Thanks a lot Jamie i was unable to resolve this without your simple help.

Anyone have an Idea to resolve this?
