I'm trying to block the creation of an issue, if its of a certain type and doesn't have a specific link. I'm using a script runner groovy validator to do that:
def isPackaging = issue.issueType.name == 'Packaging and certifications' def hasLinkToSample = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Relates to sample') return (isPackaging && hasLinkToSample)||!isPackaging
However, it doesn't work. What appears to be happening is that, even when I do add a link of type "Relates to sample", the variable "hasLinkToSample" evaluates to false.
Does anybody know what am I doing wrong here?
Validating links in transitions is a bit more complicated than the example shows.
The correct example for this can be seen in the documentation, you can access the example in this link:
The reason why it doesn't work is because the issue is not yet created, so issue.getId() returns null. In the example avobe you will access the field directly.
If we can help you with anything else, let us know.
