Log work in transition screen


in my JIRA Workflow the user can log work in the screen shown for the final transition. Additionally, a mail (JEMH message) is sent as a post function of the same transition. It should contain total amount of work logged so far.

The logged work is part of the mail content (Velocity template using $issue.getAggregateTimeSpent() and $issue.getTimeSpent()). Both functions return the same amount of time: Unfortunately, this is the value of time spent before the transition.

The work logged during the transiton (in the transition screen) updates the issue field after the transition is finished, but the old value gets included in the mail. Why does this happen? The "Send message by JEMH" is the last post function of the transition.

(Other post functions of the transition:

  • Set issue status to the linked status of the destination workflow step.
  • Add a comment to an issue if one is entered during a transition.
  • Update change history for an issue and store the issue in the database.
  • Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database.
  • Fire a Allgemeines Ereignis event that can be processed by the listeners)

JIRA Version is 6.4.3, JEMH Version is 1.7.28

Should I use another issue function? Any other ideas?


Thanks in advance,

order matters, you don't say where it is in the list you provide, put the JEMH postfunction at the end, after "Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database"

The JEMH postfunction is at the end.
