Script Fragments - How to add JS to a Web item

Hello Community,

I would like to know if there is a way to have HTML code in a Web Item and have JS code that modifies the HTML code.

I want to implement a sort of search box.

I envision utilizing a simple text area where people will input words and a button "search".

Button search will be hooked up to a Rest EndPoint.

I want it so when I click search JS grabs whatever is in the text area and appends it to the end of the Rest EndPoint URL.

So that I can grab the everything at the end of the Rest Endpoint URL via the "additionalPath" method.

Is this possible?

I think it is possible. But your solution would be too difficult to support. I do not think you should use ScriptRunner for the task. But if you still want to do it , then you could do it the following way:

1. Create web-item in Scriptrunner and choose "Do nothing you will use javascript to bind an action"

2. Create your REST endpoint

3. Install web resource. You should add your custom javascript in which you would connect to the web item created in 1 and add needed by you search box and call your REST endpoint.


I guess that would do the trick. But I never tried it and I do not have plans to try it.

@Alexey Matveev,

You where right, its hard to support.

I ended up using a static URL in an HTML document that re-directed over to site.
