Create a new Issue with data from an existing one


I am trying to create a new issue from an existing one through scriptrunner postfunction. Below is my code

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParameters
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey("DK-3814")
def groupManager = ComponentAccessor.getGroupManager()
String groupName = "ng-ngage-jira-users"

//****Declaration for Required Fields for Creation of Release****//
def assignee= issue.getAssigneeId()
def productVersion = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Product Version")
def productVersionValue = (String) issue.getCustomFieldValue(productVersion)
def ProductName = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Product Name")
def ProductNameValue = (String) issue.getCustomFieldValue(sdlProductName)
//****End of Declaration for Required Fields****//

//****Declaration for Optional Fields (user related) for Creation of Release****//
def Manager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName(" Manager")
def ManagerValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(Manager)


IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
IssueInputParameters issueInputParameters = issueService.newIssueInputParameters();


IssueService.CreateValidationResult createValidationResult = issueService.validateCreate(user, issueInputParameters)
log.error("issue input parameters: " + issueInputParameters.getActionParameters())
if (createValidationResult.isValid())
IssueService.IssueResult createResult = issueService.create(user, createValidationResult)
if (!createResult.isValid())
log.error("Error while creating the issue.")

When I try to execute it I get an error. I am unable to figure out what is the mistake here. Can someone please guide?

The Issue class does not have a getPriorityId() method, but rather it has a getPriority() method. See 

So instead of issue.priorityId you can use

Thanks Payne. It worked!

One more question - how can I get the newly created issue ID. I am unable to fetch that in my code.

Can you help?

Great! Glad it worked.

You can retrieve the newly-created issue ID from your createResult variable: will give you the actual record ID (e.g. 87001)

createResult.issue.key will give you the issue key (e.g. SD-1234)

Like Aditya Sastry likes this

I added createResult.issue.key but it isn't working. Is there something that I am missing


Another issue stated appearing when I added all my custom fields is below. Any pointers?

My first guess would be that you're not creating the new issue. I would put the log.error("newIssue"+createResulet.issue.key) line in an else block, i.e.

if (!createResult.isValid())
log.error("Error while creating the issue.")
