Error while using "Select List Conversions" behaviour of script runner

I am trying to script a drop down field  based on which will load its values based on jql. 

However, when I try to give the same initializing script it gives me following error message:

Could you post the script?

here is the script:

ajaxOptions: [
url : getBaseUrl() + "/rest/scriptrunner-jira/latest/issue/picker",
query: true, // keep going back to the sever for each keystroke

// this information is passed to the server with each keystroke
data: [
currentJql: "project = NPDAAA ORDER BY key ASC",
label : "Pick high priority issue in Support project",

// specify maximum number of issues to display, defaults to 10
// max : 5,
formatResponse: "issue"
css: "max-width: 500px; width: 500px",

What version of ScriptRunner and JIRA are you using?

I can't reproduce it with those versions when I add it as the initialiser, the type checking is successful. Is it possible you are putting the script somewhere other than the initialiser?

You may find that the behaviour works even though the static type checker complains.

Ahh.. it turns out to be environment issue. Static checker doesnot give any error  in different environment.  I am able to implement. However, is it possible to have a drop down giving "Releases" instead of "issue keys"

I assume by releases you mean versions? You would need to create your own REST endpoint for this. For an example look at:

In that endpoint you would need to use the following code to get the version names as the "value" for a particular project:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectManager)
def versionNames = projectManager.getProjectByCurrentKey("PROJ").versions*.name
