Hi William,

Can you please give more details on this matter?

Are you trying to use this SIL script as a post-function? If so, on which transition?

What Jira and Jjupin version are you using?

Do you have any errors in the log?

Thanks.

Hi,

I found this to work just fine which is exactly what I need for one of our projects.  First I made the components required.  Then tested elements of the array for my value.  Conditionally then add a watcher if value is found in array.  My code is inserted as a post-function on the create transition to open.  Here's my code:

//If the Component = Tempo add dt02765 user as watcher
number i;
number marraySize;

marraySize = arraySize(components);
for(i=0; i < marraySize; i = i + 1)
{
if(components[i] == "Tempo")
{
watchers = addElementIfNotExist(watchers, "dt02765");
}
}
