Script Post Function - Create a Subtask condition to evaluate existing subtask summary

I am using Script Post Function - Create a Subtask trying to come up with the proper condition to ring true for the following scenario:

If custom field checkbox type named 'Development Subtasks' has a value 'Research' checked


None of the existing subtasks on the issue has the summary 'Research', create the subtask.

I'm stumped on how I can evaluate the subtask summary.

cfValues['Development Subtask'].contains('Research') &&


{it.summary == "Research"} 


Thanks in advance!

Hi Todd,

The condition below should does the trick, 

//if there is no subtask with summary == "Research" then will be null 
def summaryCondition = issue.getSubTaskObjects().find {
    it.summary == "Research"
def checkBoxCondition = "Option A" in cfValues['CheckBox CF']*.value
return checkBoxCondition && !summaryCondition

In your condition the problem was that you were checking if cfValues['Development Subtask'] contains a String, when it contains LazyLoadedOptions, so you want to compare your string against the (String) values of the Options. 

Hope that helps
