How to - edit macros.vm?

Hi all,

we have a JIRA running behind 2 URLs: an internal and external. According to the project many project leads need to have the internal URL in the email templates while the others are satisfied with the default external URL hyperlinks.

We could resolve this request by pasting an if-else statement in each velocity templates:

#if( $issue.getProject().key == "PROJECTKEY")
[ https://yyyyy.yyyy.yyy/browse/${issue.getKey()}?page=${tabpanel-all} ]
#else
[ ${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}?page=${tabpanel-all} ]
#end

In the meantime we discovered the macros.vm file and with the help of that we could solve this problem much easier:according to our idea the if-else statement takes place in the macros.vm so we'd not need to put the prpoer projectID in each template but only once.

At this point we have 1 problem: we do not understand the macros.vm - it looks slightly different than the template vm-s.

Could you please change the above code according to the macros.vm?

Any idea?

Thanks in advance,

Rumi

Hi Rumi,

I have not tested it exaustivelly, but I think it would work. The original code into the macros.vm is

#set ($issueLink = "")
    #if ($issue)
        #set ($issueType = $issue.getIssueTypeObject())
        #set ($issueLink = "<a href='${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}'>#renderIcon(${issueType.iconUrlHtml} ${issueType.getNameTranslation($i18n)}) $textutils.htmlEncode($issue.getKey())</a>")
    #end

And the customized is

#set ($issueLink = "")
    #if ($issue)
        #set ($issueType = $issue.getIssueTypeObject())
			#if ( $issue.getProjectObject().getProjectCategory().getString("Test"))
			#set ($issueLink = "<a href='https://testurl/browse/${issue.getKey()}'>#renderIcon(${issueType.iconUrlHtml} ${issueType.getNameTranslation($i18n)}) $textutils.htmlEncode($issue.getKey())</a>")
			#else
	        #set ($issueLink = "<a href='${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}'>#renderIcon(${issueType.iconUrlHtml} ${issueType.getNameTranslation($i18n)}) $textutils.htmlEncode($issue.getKey())</a>")
			#end
    #end

I hope it helps.

Cheers
