I have a Database Picker scripted field which pulls data from a database. The .value field shows the ID numbers. These ID numbers are used for an additional database query.
I need to show the text of of the Database Picker scripted field in a Post function email.
How do I get the text values?
I am using JIRA Server and the Database PIcker field from ScriptRunner
Set per the instructions and added the field to a screen. The database picker populates from the database and works great.
The query pulls 2 fields, ID, Name. It displays the Name field
In a workflow Post function I want to send a custom email and display the values of the Name field. However in the Post function when is use cfValues['myfield'] it displays the ID numbers as [23,4,99]
I want to display the Name field in the custom email Post function
1) set up Database picker field called System, pulls data from database
2) Show on screen - type ahead field, allows user to select multiple items in list
3) output in Custom email in a Post Function - in Post function custom email
4) preview output, I want to display the text value - system not the ID value
I am not sure how the field knows to display the text vs. the ID, it just does it automatically
Database Picker field
Displays data in a multi-type select
Post function custom email to display the System selections
Preview of the custom email - shows IDs not the text displayed in the System field
Thank you for detail info... but unfortunatelly there is no simple way to do it. There is existing bug (https://productsupport.adaptavist.com/browse/SRJIRA-4496) which mentions the same as you do.
There is workarount but I'm not sure, it will work in email template :(
