SIL - fieldHistory routine returning only dates and empty values

I have a problem with one of our SIL script custom fields.

I'm trying to get the history of one of the custom fields. fieldHistory routine returns dates properly, but in place of changes it returns only empty values.

The code:

string[] myfield_history; //12607
string complete_list;
string m_breakline_key = "JIRA-274";
string m_breakline = substring (%m_breakline_key%.description, 1, 3);

myfield_history = fieldHistory(key, "Opis rozwiązania");
for (number i=0 ; i < size(myfield_history); i = i + 1)
	complete_list = complete_list +">"+ myfield_history[i] +"<" + m_breakline;

return complete_list;

What we get:

SIL - Historia serwisowa:

>2014-02-12 17:27:09<
>2014-02-12 17:28:58<
>2014-02-12 17:45:13<
>2014-02-12 18:06:39<

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Hi Blazej,

I have tested and confirmed the problem.

I have opened an issue on:

I will attach a snapshot there for katl-commons containing the fix.

Thanks for pointing it out.

I have resolved the issue and attached the snapshot jars containing the fix there.

Please update to katl-commons 2.5.16-SNAPSHOT and let me know if everything is ok.

This works like a charm!

That was an insanely quick bug fix :D Thanks for the awesome help.


Can you tell us the JIRA version and the type of the "Opis rozwiązania" custom field?


We're using:

  • Jira - 5.2.5
  • katl-commons - 2.5.14
  • Kepler Custom Fields - 2.1.11

Opis rozwiązania
Free Text Field (unlimited text)
Issue type(s):
Global (all issues)
[Default Text Renderer]
