How to get current issue object in Behaviour ?

Paridhi Agarwal March 7, 2018

Hi,

I am using JIRA version 7.2.9 and Script Runner version 5.0.4.

I want to set the Security Level for the current issue object in Behaviour. But I am not able to get the current issue object.

Can someone please help ?

In behaviours you can either use the underlyingIssue variable or getIssueContext()

As @Kabelo Mokgoro  suggests, underlyingIssue is correct for a Behavior server-side script.

issueContext is not of type issue.

For example:
def wf = workflowManager.getWorkflow(underlyingIssue)

@ragif.ahmadov  to get the field value you can directly use like this - 

String clientName = getFieldByName("Client").getValue()

no need for IssueContext. Just make sure the field should be present on the form/pop-screen

In actual script you can use 'issue' for current issue object.

 

For testing in script console you can use following,

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()

def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("ABC-123")

Hi,

I have already tried using "issue" object, but it is giving me the error 'the variable [issue] is undeclared'.

Please refer the logs attached.

That suggests that you have not used the last line of Suhas's code to get the issue.

I wan't to get current issue in Behaviour, in this case I will directly use 'issue' for current issue object (as depicted in screenshot below). Am I right ?capture2.png

You should use 'issueContext' instead of 'issue'.

@Suhas P 

Have you tried to use issue context and got the results?

Kabelo Mokgoro October 31, 2019

@Paridhi Agarwal Have you tried using the "underlyingIssue" variable instead?
