How Do I Using Adaptavist ScriptRunner could remove all linked issues and then add one? Edited

Aleksey Dzyapko Oct 09, 2017

Could someone advise please, how could I delete all linked issue when I change a value of custom filed (for ex. SOW) and then add linked issue mentioned in that field? 
I've tried that code, but it doesn't work at all:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import groovy.transform.Field

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours
MutableIssue currentIssue = issue
@Field
String SOW_CF_ID = 'customfield_21900'
FormField sow = getFieldById(SOW_CF_ID)
ApplicationUser currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

if (sow.value) {
ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager.removeIssueLinks(issue, currentUser)
}

First of all, because jira doesn't understand what issue it is.

Hello Aleksey,

The problem with your script is that you need to get the underlyingIssue (not just issue) in order to use this in a behaviour. Also, removeIssueLinks() does not accept a MutableIssue as a parameter, so you shouldn't define currentIssue as a MutableIssue.

This is the script that worked for me to remove linked issues:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import groovy.transform.Field

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours
def currentIssue = underlyingIssue
@Field
String SOW_CF_ID = 'customfield_21900'
FormField sow = getFieldById(SOW_CF_ID)
ApplicationUser currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

if (sow.value) {
ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager.removeIssueLinks(issue, currentUser)
}

I would also say that I really do not think this should be done in a behaviour. A script listener would be a better fit for this use-case. You could set up a listener that fires on an Issue Updated  event. If someone changes the custom field, the listener will delete all issue links once the change to the custom field is made.
