How do I Call a User Defined method from a post function? Edited

I have a user defined function in a groovy script I keep in the Script Editor file list that I want to call from post function scripts also stored in the Script Editor list. My objective is to maintain one copy of the function that can be used across scripts (post functions).  I have included the method's declaration to simplify the discussion.

Hi @Jeff Abbott 

You should create a folder in the jira directory: "Scripts" and store the scripts there.

Then in the groovy using  the postfunctions or other you can call the function from using in the script.

import util. <your_groovy_name>
// and then call your function or method
<your_groovy_name> .functionName ()

I hope it helps you, you can find the documentation in Script Roots

Hi @Jeff Abbott 

we store our util classes in Script Editor


Then access them from other other scripts

e.g. this is a workflow post function using the above


import com.cheil.retail.ShoptectConstants
import com.cheil.retail.ShoptectSubTaskHandler
import org.apache.log4j.Logger

def logit = Logger.getLogger("")

ShoptectSubTaskHandler handler = new ShoptectSubTaskHandler(issue)
