Getting date value from a custom field during close transition

Hi everybody,

 

I'm working with two workflows, one for main JIRA and one for subtasks.

When I close a subtask I have a screen that ask the user to complete a date field.

I would like the value of this date field to be "injected" in another date field in the main JIRA.

I wrote a post script function that doesn't work. Can you please give me some help?

Here is the code:

 

//Imports nécessaires
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
MutableIssue parentIssue = issue.getParentObject() as MutableIssue
def cfSendingSFD = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Deadline for sending the SFD")
def cFieldSendingSFD = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10801")
def cField = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldSendingSFD)
parentIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfSendingSFD, cField)

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Germain.

Try this, this should do the trick

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
MutableIssue parentIssue = issue.getParentObject() as MutableIssue
def cfSendingSFD = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Deadline for sending the SFD")
def cFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cFieldSendingSFD)
cfSendingSFD.updateValue(null, parentIssue, new ModifiedValue(null, cFieldValue), new DefaultIssueChangeHolder())

I am assuming on both issue and parent issue the date field is "

"Deadline for sending the SFD"

if it's not then in code you will need to add one more line

def anotherDateField= customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Main jira date field here")

 and then the last code line will be

anotherDateField.updateValue(null, parentIssue, new ModifiedValue(null, cFieldValue), new DefaultIssueChangeHolder())  

Hi Tarun,

 

The two fields have different title, so I used your last modification.

It works like a charm!

Thanks for your precious help (as usual)!

 

Regards,

 

Germain.
