Post Function: Add a comment to a linked issue

Hi there,

I am looking for a simple way to add a post function to my workflow which updates all linked issues (if they are part of certain different projects) with a simple comment, maybe adding including some variable such as issue key.


Example (closing A-123, linked issue is B-456)

if linked issue is in project B, C, D then add a comment: "The linked issue A-123 has just been resolved with the following resolution: $resolution/fieldvalue"


Is this possible? How? smile

Thanks for you help!

Thanks Jamie that's pretty much spot on! However I seem not to be able to find the right post-function in my JIRA 6.3.4. Any hints? Thanks!

You need to install Script Runner... then post-functions -> script functions -> blah.

Sorry my bad! We had this installed before, not sure why it got removed... Now it all makes sense! Thanks for the speedy response!
