Groovy script for linking Epic to Story using Epic Link


I am using GH 6.1.5.

Problem -

I am auto creating Story when a Epic is created using the script runner. The Story so created can have links of type defined in "Issue Linking". But I need it to be the containment relationship using "Epic Link".

How do we acheive this?

1. Aks the script runner to enhance.

2. Write own groovy script.

I am looking at option 2, and following fails to update in Script console, (I am a beginner) -

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager();

MutableIssue storyIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("Proj-10");

CustomFieldManager cfManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager();

CustomField cf = cfManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link');

cf.getCustomFieldType().updateValue(cf,storyIssue, 'Proj-1');

Kindly help me with corrections/options to acheive this.

If you are still looking for a solution, I assume you know the key to the epic in your script... you should be able to do something like this, this will also link up the Epic/Story in the Agile board.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
IssueManage issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();

CustomField epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link');
Issue epic = issueManager.getIssue(epicKey); // epicKey is passed into your script

	issue.setCustomFieldValue(epicLink, epic);	// issue is the newly created story

It don't works in JIRA 6.3.15....
