Groovy expresion for issue types

Hi guys,

I am looking to add a set field value to constant or groovy expression post function which will check if the issue type = X and if the condition is true then a certain field gets populated.

I tried with the groovy expressions issue.getIssueTypeObject.name == "X" and issue.issueType.name=="X".  Do you have any idea why isn't working?

I am using JIRA 7.2.6

Thanks!

This should work-

if(issue.issueType.name == 'Bug'){
//here you can add code to populate the field

}

 Which version of script runner plugin do you have installed, as this condition is very basic should work very easily. 

Hi Tarun,

Thanks for replying.

The post function looks something like this

I tried multiple approaches but nothing seems to work. Script Runner is version 4.3.12.

Thanks!

I thought you are using script runner plugin thus I shared the groovy script with you, but it seems you are using JMWE plugin which also supports groovy script (new feature in the plugin)

 

Please use this syntax


return (issue.get("issuetype").getName() == "Bug")

Please see the docs here in case you are using groovy expressions for the JMWE plugin -https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JMWE/Groovy+editor+in+JMWE
