I was working on script for a Custom Listener (using Jira 7.3 and ScriptRunner 4.3) and noticed that following piece of code works:
def issueKey = "JIRA-1234"; def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager() def issueObject = issueManager.getIssueObject("JIRA-1234") def issueObjectID = issueObject.getId()
def issueObject = issueManager.getIssueObject("KEY-1234")
is being replaced by:
def issueObject = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKey)
The code just assigns null to the issueObject variable and code returns following error:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke method getId() on null object
So in other words when the issue key is used directly as parameter for getIssueObject method - the code works. But when variable is used as a parameter - the code doesn't work.
Any idea why this is happening?
BTW, I have circumvented this problem using Search Provider (I share workaround in case somebody has similar problem and needs working solution):
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser import com.atlassian.jira.issue.search.SearchProvider import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser); def searchProvider = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchProvider); def authContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext(); def issueKey = "JIRA-1234"; def jqlQuery = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery(issueKey); def user = authContext.getLoggedInUser(); def results = searchProvider.search(jqlQuery, user, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter());
def issues = results.getIssues();
def issueObject = issues;
def issueObjectID = issueObject.getId();
Thanks in advance for clarifying this oddness for me!
