Fire update Event using scriptrunner

Hi 

I'm trying to write a script that update issue custom field

the script is working and the custom field is indeed updated but there is no indication of the issue changed event in the history

any idea why is that?

thanks

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.IssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;
import com.atlassian.jira.security.JiraAuthenticationContext
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(IssueManager.class);
def cfManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager(); 
Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TMP-8136");
IssueEvent event;
MutableIssue iss=issue
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
IssueChangeHolder changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();           
def Cf=cfManager.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_10801');    
Double num=5
Cf.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(Cf),num ), changeHolder);
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(currentUser, iss, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false);

Note that you update value for iss, but store changes for issue.

I also modified your code, use it if you like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TMP-8136");

issue.setCustomFieldValue(
        ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject('customfield_10801')
        , 5)

ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(
        ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().getDirectoryUser()
        , issue
        , EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED
        , false);

Should work fine but the more modern approach is to use IssueService to do an issue update.

Also, the code above is for JIRA 6. On JIRA 7, remove the ".getDirectoryUser()"

Thank you both!! it works great!!
