Create issue in another project with Script Runner

Hello guys,

I have two project, A and B.
I need to create a postfunction on Project A, that will create a new issue on Project B.

Is there a way I can do that with script runner?
Have been looking for example scripts arround, but all of them are related to subtasks.

Any insight on the matter is highly appreaciated.

Kind regards

Hello Ariel.

This can be done through the scripted post-function Clones and issue and links.

1. Go to workflows.

2. Select the workflow for your project A

3. Select the transition from the status that you want to trigger your post function. For example, the "To Do" transition.

4. Go to the post functions tab.

5. Click "Add post function"

6. Select "Script Post function" and click next.

7. Select "Clones Issue and Links"

At that point you should set up the function as you would want it to be, a simple example would be like this:

After it is added, you need to move this post function to the last place in the transition queue with the arrows(it will originally be in the first place, and this could be troublesome for some transitions).

It will appear like so:

And you need to use the arrows in the far right untill it's in last place:

Publish your draft and it should work as intended.

If this does not help you feel free to ask us again.

Also you can check the documentation for this function here





Currently I have to set target project, Is there anyway I set target project based on conditions?

Set multiple postfunctions on the same transition with different target projects and try to manage your conditions via the top scripting field "Condition" seen in the screenshot. 

hope this helps =)
