Custom Scripted Condition Using Both INward & OUTward Links Failing

I have looked here and here and here. And many other places. I cannot for the life of me figure out why this cannot read EITHER inward OR outward for this condition.

Does not work:

--- if (! issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Reopen') || ! issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Reopen'))


Implemented in lieu:


import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.IssueLinksSystemField;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException;
import webwork.action.ActionContext;

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def fields = []

def fieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getFieldManager()
def linksSystemField = fieldManager.getField("issuelinks") as IssueLinksSystemField

def request = ActionContext.getRequest()
if (request) {
    def params = request.getParameterMap()
    def issueLinkingValue = linksSystemField.getRelevantParams(params) as IssueLinksSystemField.IssueLinkingValue

// If issue is not REOPENED LINK TYPE, make all sorts of validations
if (! issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Reopen') ) 
    fields.addAll(['BA Actual Hours', 'BA Analysis By', 'Bug Source', 'Complexity', 'Data Fix', 'Dev Estimate Hrs', 'QA Estimate Hrs', 'RCA Categories - BA', 'Release Notes', 'Stat Code Impact'])

        CustomField cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(it)
        if (cf && !issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)) 
            if (invalidInputException)
                invalidInputException.addError(, "Value missing!")
                invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException(, "Value missing!")
    if (invalidInputException)
        invalidInputException.addError("The fields marked below must be filled before analysis is completed.")
else return true


And I am sure I have a lot of unnecessary stuff in here. I'm doing the best I can sad


WHat I need to know is how do I make this condition pass for EITHER inward OR outward links? If I tell it either/or, then (based on how I wrote the clause) either: everything fails, inward fails, or everything passes regardless of links.

This widget could not be displayed.
Change || to &&
"Not outward linked" AND "Not inward linked"
Not Red AND Not Blue -> Blue = Fail, Red = Fail, Green = Pass
Not Red OR Not Blue -> Blue = Pass, Red = Pass, Green = Pass
!issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Reopen') && !issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Reopen'))

I know we don't know each other.

But I love you.
