Jira Transition Post Function Script

I would like to write a post function for the create transition.

I would like the post function to check the following:

If the Issue type is not bug and Description is Empty

set Description field to "Not Entered" and Priority field to "Priority 4"

Any ideas on how to do that?

Try something like that:


if ((!issue.getIssueType().name.toString().equals("Bug")) and (issue.description == null)){
    issue.setDescription("Not Entered")

P.S. Use a custom scripted postfunction

Do you have scripts post function plugin (Script Runner) or Misk Workflow postfuncions?

I do have script runner

Does my answer worked for you?
