JJupin - Live Fields: How can I launch the initial script of a project when I'm not located in an issue.

 

Very often people launch  issue creation from every part of JIRA, not only when are located over an issue. For example, if I lauch issue creation from a Dashboard or Filter screen, initial LF script is not activated and scripts don't work.

How can I make for avoid that?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Actually, this isn't supposed to happen: live fields should launch on any create screen. Do you call any instant hook in the main script? (mainly, there are the ones that work on create screens).

My initial script is:

// Seleccionar servicio catálogo (21500)
lfWatch( "customfield_21500", {"customfield_21500","project"}, "/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_serviciocatalogo/completa_serviciocatalogo_lf.sil");
// Seleccionar grupo soporte (20900)
lfWatch("customfield_20900",{"customfield_20900","customfield_14214","project"},"/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_gruposoporte/completa_gruposoporte_lf.sil");
//Seleccionar técnico soporte (20901)
lfWatch("customfield_20901",{"customfield_20901"},"/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_tecnicosoporte/completa_tecnicosoporte_lf.sil");
// Al modificar el grupo de soporte (20900), limpiar el técnico (20901)
lfWatch("customfield_20900", {"customfield_20900","customfield_20901"}, "/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_tecnicosoporte/limpia_tecnicosoporte.sil");

On edit screen, lfWatch works just fine. It may work on create issues from an existing issue as well, since it has some data present on screen.
However, for create screen, we recommend using lfInstantHook.
Try to add this to your script:

// Seleccionar servicio catálogo (21500)
lfInstantHook({"customfield_21500","project"}, "/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_serviciocatalogo/completa_serviciocatalogo_lf.sil");
// Seleccionar grupo soporte (20900)
lfInstantHook({"customfield_20900","customfield_14214","project"},"/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_gruposoporte/completa_gruposoporte_lf.sil");
//Seleccionar técnico soporte (20901)
lfInstantHook({"customfield_20901"},"/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_tecnicosoporte/completa_tecnicosoporte_lf.sil");
// Al modificar el grupo de soporte (20900), limpiar el técnico (20901)
lfInstantHook({"customfield_20900","customfield_20901"}, "/datos_apl/jira/silprograms/proyectos_soporte/busqueda_tecnicosoporte/limpia_tecnicosoporte.sil");

It should do the trick. smile

Thanks! It works for me!!
