How to run an external process in post-function using script runner

JIRA (3.13.3 - Windows Platform)


We would like to run an executable with parameters in a  post-function, we've tried several ways, one as follows, with "WaitFor()" the workflow transitions takes a long time to complete, without "waitFor()" the workflow transition complete faster, in neither case the command run successfully.

We've tested the command.text out of JIRA, in command line, and it works well.


def command = """C:\\JIRA-Enterprise-3.13.1\\datadir\\groovyscripts\\InsertPBI.exe "http://url" "web" "$title1" "$descrip1" "$myIssue.key" "$myIssue.assignee" """ //string
 log.debug command.toString()
 Process process = command.execute()


Is it possible to do what we are trying to accomplish?

We are very grateful for script runner, it has helped us a lot, we were able to automatize many tasks with it. It's a great tool.

Thank you!

We could solve the issue, it was something related to authentication in the external procedure, now is working perfectly.

Thank you for this great plugin!
