SIL post function not working when I use standard variables

Guess who's back! Okay so I have this working during a transition (the two CustVars are fields on the transition screen):

string strDBRequestDesc = "Variable 1: " + #{CustVar1} + "\n Variable 2:" + #{CustVar2};
string strIssueSum = 'test Issue summary';
string strJiraID = 'JIRA-123';
string strUser = 'me';

string [] results = sql("CustDBConnection", "EXEC dbo.SampleStoredProcedure @CommType = 'U',@CommFrom = 'Other',@CommDesc = '" + strDBRequestDesc + "',@CommSubject = '" + strIssueSum + "',@CommJiraID = '" + strJiraID + "',@user = '" + strUser + "',@SendMail = 1");

If replace the variable assignment with standard variables it doesn't work:

string strIssueSum = description;
string strJiraID = id;
string strUser = assignee;

I also tried putting the standard variables inside #{} and it didn't work. The editor tells me that my syntax is okay. I have a guess that while the transition screen is shown, there is no issue context, but there should be right? Thanks again for the help!

Hey I tried to come back and post the answer but this site was down when I tried. I was using "id" instead of "key" which I believe was my problem. JJUPIN also keeps disabling itself (it's supposed to be running under a demo license but the warden just keeps disabling it) so that could've been an issue as well. Thanks for checking!

If no one knows what could be wrong, could someone tell me how to enable/create some detailed logs so that I can figure out where the error is occurring?

Well I used this to enable logging:

http://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/JJUP20/Configure+JIRA+Logging

I set it to WARN, which produced no messages, so now I'm going to try print() to see the values during the transition.

Hi Steve,

Is this still a problem for you? Can I help you further?
