Jira scriptrunner groovy script refresh/reload

I am using JIRA software 7.3.0 and ScriptRunner plugin 4.3.16. I am wondering how often the groovy script changes are reloaded? I noticed that in some cases the changes take affect immediately while in other cases it keeps running the old code until the new code takes over after rather a long time.

The script should be reloaded when it is modified. The exception is if it's a dependent class. In this case you'll need to modify the calling script by adding whitespace or a comment to get it to recompile.

Do you have your script under one of your script roots? The reloading is explained in that section of the docs.

What type of scripts are taking a long time to load? Workflow functions, event listeners etc?


Thanks. The change was in a dependent class, which is invoked by another script as a post function.
