Postfunction Send a custom email with ScriptRunner doesn't work


I have added a postfunction "ScriptRunner workflow function - Send a custom email".

When i preview the result on a specific issue it's work.

After some test when i go to the postfunction i see that "No failures in the last 4 execution(s)".

But the notification never arrived.

I have put into the condition and configuration field : == 'Invoice'


I have put into the email template field :

Dear ${issue.assignee?.displayName},

The ${} <a href = "${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}">${issue.key}</a> has been assigned to you.

</br>Description: $issue.description

<% if (mostRecentComment)
    out << "Last comment: " << mostRecentComment



I have put into the subject template field :

Issue $issue requires your approval

I have put inzo the To issue fields field :


Does any one can help me ?

Hi Stéphane,

Are you using Jira Sever or Jira Cloud? I have tested a post-function on server according to your specifications and it works for me.

Could you go to the workflow step that you've added the post-function on and ensure that the post-function is the last item to be executed on the workflow step? If the post-function is not the last item, could you move it down?

I use Jira server and in fact I'm sorry it works fine.

It's just that our new testing machine has not been connected with an SMTP server.

I am really sorry.

Hi Stéphane,

No worries :)

I am glad you found your problem.

Thanks for using ScriptRunner!
