In script runner is there a way to run the script post-commit on an issue create?

In script runner I created a custom listener. When running on issue create, no field values are returned(as if no field values are created in the database).

This only works when we edit the issue.

My guess is the script is running before the issue is commited.

Is there a way to run the script post-commit on an issue create?

How do you read the field values in the listener? Do you use the issue from the event?

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager()

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getCustomFieldManager()

ComponentManager mycomponentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()

UserUtil userUtil = mycomponentManager.getUserUtil()

def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()

Issue issue = event.getIssue()

//Issue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("XXX-64" )

User currentUser = event.getUser()

System.out.println ("CurrentUser is " + currentUser.getDisplayName())

System.out.println ("CurrentUser Email is " + currentUser.getEmailAddress())

CustomField customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName( "Corp ID" )

// retrieves the custom field value object from the issue

Object customFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue( customField )

System.out.println("Corp ID is " + issue.getCustomFieldValue( customField ).name)

User user = userUtil.getUser(issue.getCustomFieldValue( customField ).name);

// prints value to console

System.out.println ("Corp ID Full User Name is " + user.getDisplayName())

System.out.println ("Corp ID Email Address is " + user.getEmailAddress())

System.out.println( customFieldValue )

def p4Project = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName( "P4 Project" )

We are having a problem trying to get a script to run post creation. It only seems to work on edit, does not work on creation.

On edit, the script (ExampleListener) is run from here:

But on create, it is not run, even though we set it as a post function.

Can we use the functions issueManager, CustomFieldManager etc in a post function or do we have to use different functions and classes such as AbstractJiraFunctionProvider?

A listener must not be triggered in a post function. A listener listens on the events you define while you configure the listener. You should choose the "Issue Created" (instead of "Issue Updated") event to get the listener triggered after an issue was created. Remove the post function in the workflow, you can't call listeners from there.
