Create a Validator to Link Issue only from a certain Project or Project Key


title says it all. 

I have transition screen to force a person to fill in a linked issue. How can I set a validator to only allow the user to select a linked issue from a specific project?

Key: "BD"


1 answer

Create a simple scripted workflow validator on the same transition as the screen where the user is inputting the linked issues. This script will make sure all the users choices issues are part of the project with key "BD".

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import webwork.action.ActionContext

def fieldManager = ComponentAccessor.fieldManager
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.issueManager

def linksSystemField = fieldManager.getField("issuelinks")

def request = ActionContext.request
def params = request.parameterMap
def issueLinkingValue = linksSystemField.getRelevantParams(params)

def linkedIssues = issueLinkingValue.linkedIssues
def linkedIssueProjects = linkedIssues.collect { issueManager.getIssueObject(it).projectObject.key }

linkedIssueProjects == ["BD"]

Thank you very much! It worked absolutely as expected.
