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!
