Jira Script fields are not getting indexed.


I am have created a plugin that will capture an Event called on Post function. Inside that plugin, I am reindexing issues. But unfortunately, the script fields are not getting indexed, rather they lose indexes.

The code for indexing is as follows:


for(Issue issue:issueList)

//MutableIssue issueObj= issueManager.getIssueObject(issue.getKey());

boolean wasIndexing = ImportUtils.isIndexIssues();

catch (IndexException e)

Hi Sunil,

Is this issue due to the Script fields returning cached values.

If so you can force values to dynamically be refreshed each time a field is called by adding the line enableCache = {-> false} to the top of your script.

Further information on caching for Scripted Fields can be found here.

I hope this helps.
