Jira 8 ServiceDesk 4 Scritrunner - getrequesttype in listener

I have the following code that worked before upgrading to Jira 8/ServiceDesk4 but now it does not and I have not been able to find a replacement for this. This is in a listener and I am just needing to get the request type.


def requestTypeEither = ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(RequestTypeService).getRequestTypes(curUser,sourceIssueRequestTypeQuery)

if (requestTypeEither.isLeft()) {
log.error "${requestTypeEither.left().get()}"
def requestType = requestTypeEither.right.results[0]


What is the new method?

groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: right for class: com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.util.paging.PagedResponseImpl at

Same problem here, did you solve it?

seems like there has been some changes, in my former code I supposed

com.atlassian.servicedesk.api.requesttype.RequestTypeService.getRequestTypes to return a

 so this faild although it was working before:

def requestTypes = requestTypeService.getRequestTypes(currentUser, requestTypeQuery)

return (requestTypes?.right?.results[0]?.getIssueTypeId()).toString()


just changed it to something like:



requestTypes?.each{ ... }
