Can some on ehelp me to understand what are above filed and since i lready have my customfields and their value exists , how can i use it in below example}

The script i am runing is below:

<jira:AddCustomFieldValue name="Documentation Link" value="link://http:google.com"/> <jira:AddCustomFieldValue name="Issue Frequency" value="Always"/>

<jira:AddCustomFieldValue name="Platform" value="Windows XP x64,Windows 7 x64"/>

I am getting following error "java.io.IOException: expected '=', got 'j'

Use the id instead of the name. (name says deprecated)

  • Also priority seems to be wrong. Give only "Major"
  • You dont have a closing '>' tag for jira:CreateIssue
  • And I couldn't see the tag </jira:CreateIssue>
