Is there a way to show the difference between 2 different multi-checkbox custom fields using Scripted Fields?

Peter Bengov Community Champion Nov 03, 2014

I have 2 custom fields with the same values in both. I'd like to compare the values and show in a 3rd (scripted) field what are the values that I have checked in field #1 and don't have checked in field #2.

Moreover, if would help to know how can a loop over the multicheckbox field and access each value there. 

Thanks

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def field1Vals = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("First Field")) as List<Option>
field1Vals*.value

The last line gives you the string values of field 1, eg \["Yes, "No", "Maybe"]

Do the same for field two...

leftFields.intersect(rightFields)

will give you the common ones, so you can just loop through and render the differences nicely.

Thank you Jamie. Writing below some more code I used, maybe will help future user as well. {code:} import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor; def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager(); List field1 = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("field1")) as List<String>; List field1 = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("field1")) as List<String>; field1*.value; field1*.value; // this how I got to know if the checkbox value (label) is indeed checked (looped me lists for this): if (field1*.value.contains("label1") == true) {code}
