Error in Validator script to check all the linked issues should have status "Verified"

I have this code


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Category
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

IssueLinkManager linkMgr = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()

for (IssueLink link in linkMgr.getOutwardLinks( {

log.debug("linked issue type: " +
log.debug("linked issue key: " + link.getSourceObject().getKey())
log.debug("linked issue status (name): " + link.getSourceObject().getStatus().getName())
log.debug("linked issue status (id): " + link.getSourceObject().getStatus().getId())

if (!link.getSourceObject().getStatus().getName().contains("Verified")) {
log.debug("issue " + link.getSourceObject().getKey() + " is not in Active state")
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("Linked issue is not in a status of Template")
throw invalidInputException


here,.. it should check all the linked issues are in verified state and then change the status of the issue.

All i get is invalid error exception : null.


could anyone please help???/

I am guessing the exception trace shows the exception is occurring in the for loop condition. (It is a good idea to get the stack trace whenever an exception occurs because it helps with debugging)

You could try this instead as your for loop condition


Hey shivaram,

Try the below code in your validator

int count=issue.getLinkedIssues("Includes").size()
int status

return true}

else{return false}

I hope this is what your are looking for.


where the issue from?
