[GROOVY] Set priority script

Hello people smile,

 I have a problem with my new script. How it works. In our project we have 2 single-choice fields (Urgency, Impact) and this script depending on their values sets priority of ticket. Problem is that...it doesn't change priority sad. Can somebody look into it and tell me where i made a mistake please?

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.config.PriorityManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.priority.Priority
import com.atlassian.jira.config.ConstantsManager
import org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue

MutableIssue currentIssue = issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def urgency = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Urgency")
def impact = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Impact")
def uValue = urgency.getValue(currentIssue).toString()
def iValue = impact.getValue(currentIssue).toString()
int uNumb, iNumb
switch (uValue) {
   case "Cannot Work":
     uNumb = 1
     break;
 
   case "Obstruction of Work":
     uNumb = 2
     break;
    
   case "Functionality Problem":
     uNumb = 3
     break;
    
   default:
     System.out.println();
}
switch (iValue) {
   case "Company Wide":
     iNumb = 1
     break;
 
   case "More then one project":
     iNumb = 2
     break;
    
   case "Single project":
     iNumb = 3
     break;
   case "Individual":
     iNumb = 4
     break;
    
   default:
     System.out.println();
}
int pValue = iNumb + uNumb
def priority = " "
if(pValue >= 1 && pValue <= 2)
	priority = "Critical"
else if(pValue >= 3 && pValue <= 4)
    priority = "Major"
else if(pValue >= 6 && pValue <=8)
    priority = "Normal"
else
    priority = "Minor"
def cm = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()
def priorities = cm.getPriorities()
priorities.each { prio ->
    if(prio.name == priority)
    	currentIssue.setPriorityObject(prio)
}

It is set into postfunctions on initial "Create" transition as last one of them, and it shows there is no failures.

Thanks in advance,
Cheers,
Maciej O.

An build-in postfucntion "Save to DB" should be added on create transiton after custom script.

I also refactored your code

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.priority.Priority

MutableIssue currentIssue = issue
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

int num;

switch (customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Urgency").getValue(currentIssue).toString()) {
    case "Cannot Work":
        num = 1;
        break;

    case "Obstruction of Work":
        num = 2
        break;

    case "Functionality Problem":
        num = 3
        break;

    default:
        System.out.println();
}

switch (customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Impact").getValue(currentIssue).toString()) {
    case "Company Wide":
        num += 1
        break;

    case "More then one project":
        num += 2
        break;

    case "Single project":
        num += 3
        break;
    case "Individual":
        num += 4
        break;

    default:
        System.out.println();
}

String priority;
switch (num){
    case 1: case 2: priority = "Critical"; break;
    case 3: case 4: priority = "Major"; break;
    case 6: case 7: case 8: priority = "Normal"; break;
    default: priority = "Minor"
}

for(Priority priority1: ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager().getPriorityObjects()){
    if(priority1.getName().equals(priority)){
        currentIssue.setPriorityObject(issue)
        break;
    }
}

Thank you very much it works!

For me it does not work: image.png

i guess it hast to be 

"currentIssue.setPriorityObject(priority)"

and not

"currentIssue.setPriorityObject(issue)".

However, this is only a guess and it isn't working for me either.

For me works:
currentIssue.setPriorityId(ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager().getPriorities().find{it.getName().equals("Name of the priority")}.getId());

// Update Issue
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(user, issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)
