Question about "Send a custom email" Post Function and helper.issueTable Edited

Hi,

I configured the "Send a custom email" Post Function as follows so it includes "Linked Issues" in the email... 

Condition and Configuration:

config.a="issue in linkedIssues("+issue.key+")"

Email Template:

<b>Linked Issues:</b>
${helper.issueTable(a, 10)}

 

It successfully displays a table with the linked issues, BUT it shows ALL of the columns/fields that you would normally see in the JIRA JQL search results. Is there a way to limit the columns that display in the email? If not, is there another way to go about this? ...I only want to display a few fields (e.g. Issue Key, Summary, Status).

 

Thanks in advance!

I was able to resolve this by looping through the Linked Issues and building out the list of linked issues (Please excuse the code as I don't claim to be a developer by any means :)).

...I hope it helps someone else.

 <b>Linked Issues:</b> <br>

<ul>
<%

def outwardlinks = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())
def inwardlinks = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getInwardLinks(issue.getId())
def oCounter=0
def iCounter=0


// Check for Outward Links...
if (outwardlinks)

for (id in outwardlinks) {
def linkedissueKey = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(outwardlinks[oCounter].destinationId).key
def linkedissueSummary = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(outwardlinks[oCounter].destinationId).summary
def linkedissueStatus = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(outwardlinks[oCounter].destinationId).status.name

out << "<li><a href='https://jira.domain.com/browse/"+linkedissueKey+"'>"+linkedissueKey+"</a> "
out << "("+linkedissueStatus+"):"
out << linkedissueSummary+"</li><br>"

oCounter ++
}


// Check for Inward Links...
if (inwardlinks)

for (id in inwardlinks) {
def linkedissueKey = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(inwardlinks[iCounter].sourceId).key
def linkedissueSummary = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(inwardlinks[iCounter].sourceId).summary
def linkedissueStatus = com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(inwardlinks[iCounter].sourceId).status.name

out << "<li><a href='https://jira.domain.com/browse/"+linkedissueKey+"'>"+linkedissueKey+"</a> "
out << "("+linkedissueStatus+"):"
out << linkedissueSummary+"</li><br>"


iCounter ++
}

%>

</ul>

 

I'm still interested in whether or not you can limit the columns/fields displayed in the results when using the following solution...

 Condition and Configuration:

config.a="issue in linkedIssues("+issue.key+")"

Email Template:

<b>Linked Issues:</b>
${helper.issueTable(a, 10)}
