Suppose I have four single line text fields:
Custom field 1
Custom field 2
Custom field 3
Custom field 4
after they are filled with text like text1, text2, text3,text4
There is a new multi line text field
Custom field 5
the custom field 5 should be populated with the four values from the custom fields as bullet points like
First you need to define how your fields are updated. If they are updated on transition or issue creation then you can develop a post-function. If the fields are updated in the edit dialog then you should develop a listener.
In any case your code would consist of the following parts:
1. You get 5 references to the field. Here is an example:
def cs1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Custom field 1")
up to cs5
2. You concatenate values of the four custom fields:
def result = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cs1) + '\n' + issue.getCustomFieldValue(cs2) + '\n' + issue.getCustomFieldValue(cs3) + '\n' + issue.getCustomFieldValue(cs4)
3. You set the result variable for multiline field:
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder(); cs5.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(cs5), result),changeHolder);
