How to add JIRA service with groovyrunner?

Hi everybody.

i'm trying to add a service with groovyrunner. I'm doing the following steps:

1. Create the script testService.groovy

import org.apache.log4j.Category

log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.example.testService")

log.debug("Service testService script running")

file's absolut path is: /opt/jira/groovyscripts/services/testService.groovy

2. Going to administration section and filling the fields

Name: com.onresolve.jira.groovy.GroovyService

Class: /opt/jira/groovyscripts/services/testService.groovy

3. I'm always getting an error


[/opt/jira/groovyscripts/services/testService.groovy] was not found.

Ensure that you have typed it correctly and it is in the classpath.

I have followed the instructions from documentation and relative questions without luck.

Probably i'm missing something...

Thanx in advance,

The service name is anything you like, use it for your own info.

The class is com.onresolve.jira.groovy.GroovyService.

In the next part of the form you enter the path to the file... testService.groovy in your case.

Thanx Jamie,

my mind was stuck...for an unkown reason i was putting the path in class field
