Hello,

we add some phrases to comments written during a transition in our workflows. Our biggest problem was to get the information if a comment has been written on the transition screen. With the following code you can get the information you need.

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

// Manager
def cm = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()

currComments = cm.getComments(issue)

if (!currComments.isEmpty()) {
 currComment = currComments.get(currComments.size()-1)
 if (issue.getUpdated() <= currComment.getUpdated()) {
  log.debug "There is a comment during transition."
 } else {
  log.debug "There is no comment during transition."
 }
}

I hope this helps to solve your problem. Now you can add something to the comment or use it for whatever you like.

EDIT: I missed an important information for my answer.

You have to put this code in the post-function section of your workflow transition after the step "Add a comment to an issue if one is entered during a transition."
If you just add this code, it will be added on top and then you have to move it below the step. You can't access the new comment earlier.

 

hey Thank you so much. It works.

actually my post function position was wrong

There is much easier way to get comment from transition screen:

transientVars.get("comment")

As of today 2019-OCT-09 it works fine as well with JIRA 8 and scriprunner v5.
