How to append new selected list value to existing multi line scripted field Edited

Hi, below is my use case.

  • I have a Custom field defined with check boxes
  • When user selects the check boxes, am adding it to a Scripted field and keep appending to the Multi line scripted field as they select to track all the selction

Below is the script i have

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
CustomField customFieldDE = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("RPR DE Return Reason")
CustomField customFieldPM = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("RPR PM Return Reason")


def customFieldtrail = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("RPR Return Err Code Trail")
def customFieldtrailval = getCustomFieldValue(customFieldtrail)

//System.out.println("Custom field value: " + customFieldtrailval)

StringBuilder stringBuilder = new StringBuilder()
stringBuilder.append(customFieldtrailval)

((List<Option>) issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldDE)).each {
stringBuilder.append(it.getValue()).append(", ")
}

((List<Option>) issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldPM)).each {
stringBuilder.append(it.getValue()).append(", ")
}

return stringBuilder.toString()

The issue i have is on the bold line. it is lways returning Null.

 

below is what i get

nullD1-1(Incorrect Revenue),

Kindly advise, if there are better options to handle this .

 

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I think you may be better off using a listener for this purpose, then putting the result that the listener calculates into a custom field if you need it displayed.

You should be able to use similar code, with a few modifictions to access fields and such. 

You can read more about listeners here.

Let me know if you need any help setting this up!

Thank you Jenna, will try and keep this thread updated
