How to get issue key in clone issue and links post function?

Hi everybody,

i'm using clones issue and links post function from groovyrunner plugin. I want to pass the issuekey in the summary of new linked issue.

In additional issue actions field i have the following

log.warn("key: " + issue.getKey())

But from logs i see that i get a null value.

Any idea how can i get the issue key?

Thanks in advance

This widget could not be displayed.

try:

transientVars["issue"].key

This should give you the key of the issue that you are cloning from.

That's it.

Thanx a lot

What if you wanted to get the key of the issue you have just created as result of cloning? That is, the new issue key?

In recent version it's available as *sourceIssue*

When I try to access this I get a null pointer exception log.debug("DBG: issue key is " + transientVars["sourceIssue"].key)

Brian - what version of the plugin are you using?
