Creating an issue on a workflow transition


I have a workflow transition and there is a groovy script in its post function. This script should create a new issue under different project and also create a link for the issue. What my problem is that I get an error like this:

Communications Breakdown

The JIRA server could not be contacted. This may be a temporary glitch or the server may be down.

Close this dialog and press refresh in your browser

This is from the log file:

Exception in thread "ajp-bio-8009-exec-4626" java.lang.StackOverflowError

Is there any suggestion?

Read your log file to see what might be causing that (read above and below it).

A common cause of a Stack Overflow is looping or recursive code. Try removing the script and checking that the basics work, then re-enable parts of your script one at a time until the error happens again. At least you'll know where the fault is.

Thanks for your quick reply Nic. I guess there is a problem with this line.

Map<String,Object> newIssueParams = ["issue":newIssue] as Map<String,Object>
    Issue newIssueObj = issueManager.createIssueObject(currentUserObj, newIssueParams)

I use these lines in subtask creation but I am not sure if it is ok when trying to create a new issue under different project as well. Do you have any idea?

Make sure the this post function is NOT on the create issue transition !!!

Yes, good point - the "new issue" line will fail if this is on the "create issue" transition - you need to have the main issue in existence before you can execute other creates.
