Groovy script for project and scheme creation - how to?

Hi Everyone,

we use a plenty of Jelly scipts for easy project, permission scheme and notification scheme creation. Hence Jelly is not supported anymore from the next JIRA version, we need to change to Groovy. The problem is that we don't know Groovy and therefore I ask you whether you have already such scripts or script skeleton?

It would be great help for us!


Thanks in advance,

basically it is not much different from java.
you inject JIRA components into the script and call their methods pretty much the same way you would do it in pure java. You can use ComponentManager or ComponentAccessor statically to inject JIRA components.

example creating a new project

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager 
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

/* statically load project manager */
def projectManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getProjectManager()

/* use project manager to create project */

Note: you may want to inject other JIRA components first to resolve parameters required to create desired projects and schemes. Follow JIRA docs.

Hi Alexej, thank you!
