I'm using Script Runner on Jira 6.17 to write a Validator script.
Validation works fine, except when the field I validate against has been changed on the transition screen.Then I still get the old value of the field.
I use issueManager.getIssueObject(issue.id).getCustomFieldValue("Custom field name") to get the field i want to validate, but this field has not been updated with the users change on the transition screen. Im guessing that it is because the value is updated during the post function phase of the transition.
How do I get the value of the field that is on the transition screen?
I'm not sure Benji's answer is right.
Your problem is that you're reloading the issue from the db rather than just using the issue object provided to you in the binding.
should work fine. No IssueManager.
Unfortunately this is not possible with validators. A validator is intended to check the values before a transition is executed (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Workflow).
You have 2 options:
1) Write a post function that does the validation at the end of the transition
2) Add a validator at the begining of the next transition that validates the values entered in the previous transition
Your statements are contradictory. If what you have mentioned "A validator is intended to check the values before a transition is executed ", is true, then how is the validator given an option to perform an Field Modified function to check whether a field is modified in the transition screen or not??
In my validator script i have access to both what is the current state with values that might have been modified in the transition screen (that is the issue object named issue available in the script), and how the issue actually looks like in the database, eg with no modifications made. So the "issue" object contains the information the issue contains in the transition that have not yet been saved. And the issue object i get from "issueManager.getIssueObject(issue.id)" is the database version of the issue. That is how it really is. In the validator i just compare the values contained in the customfields, and if they differ a modification has been made on the transition screen. Hope this answer your question.
