How do I add javascript code to a built-in script in ScriptRunner v5.4+

In ScriptRunner v5.3, I added some custom javascript via a script fragment. The js added an event listener to when a particular (custom) canned script was loaded, so that I could wire up change listener to a project select drop-down (which only existed on the DOM after the canned script was loaded). This other listener used a REST call to load issues for the selected project that fit a JQL query. The code is as follows:

!(function ($) {
    "use strict";

    $(function () {
        var scriptName = "com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.jira.admin.ReconcileGbhTime";
        $(document).on("/start/" + scriptName, scriptLoad);

        function scriptLoad() {
            var projectSelect = $("select#project");
            var issueSelect = $("select#issue");

            function getIssuesForProject() {
                var params = {
                    jql: "project = '" + projectSelect.val() +  "' AND statusCategory = 'In Progress' "
                        + "AND issuetype in standardIssueTypes() and issuetype != Deliverable",
                    fields: "summary",
                    maxResults: -1 //absolute max is 1000

                $.getJSON("/rest/api/2/search", params, function(res) {
                    issueSelect.append(new Option("", ""));
                    for(let issue of res.issues) {
                        issueSelect.append(new Option(issue.key + ": " + issue.fields.summary, issue.key));


In ScriptRunner v5.4, it appears the admin section has been changed quite a bit, and no “/start/<script-name>” event is getting fired when I select a built-in script. Therefore, the project drop-down has no change listener and the issue drop-down is never populated.

What event can I listen to, other how can I otherwise add an event to the drop-down that is created as part of this canned script?

p.s. I already figure out that the JQuery selector for the drop downs needs to be replaced with something like:

I have a similar issue on my side, but instead of using Web Fragment to include JavaScript, I was adding a script tag in the description of a built-in script. This script was executed with version 7.5.3 of JIRA and SR 5.2.1, but it is not executed anymore with SR version 5.4.49.


JIRA.HideBuiltIns = JIRA.HideBuiltIns || (function() {
return {
init: function() {
alert("do something");

AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
setTimeout(JIRA.HideBuiltIns.init, 10);

// Button Back to List also needs to hide built-ins
AJS.$("#cancel").click(function() {


Can we customise eazyBi report using JavaScript in Jira Script Runner ?
