[Script Runner] Clone issue post-functions - passing project and issuetype as parameters.

Is there any possibility to override the default interface of the "Clone issue and links" post-function?

I would like to pass the project and issuetype as parameters in the "additional issue actions".

I have unpacked the script runner plugin and tried to take a peek into the code of the post-function to look for some hints, but I'm afraid I became more confused than I was before :) Not to mention the function itself seems to be scattered in three different files.

Here is an example of my desired use case:

An approach would be to create as many postfunctions as the combinations of projects and issue types you have.

Well, that's not exactly what I wanted, but for now, as long as I have less than 10 combinations your method does the trick. Thanks!

you want something like:

issue.setIssueTypeId(3) ... etc

Ah... I think I maybe understand what you are asking. You should be able to get the selected target project key using:

static import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.canned.jira.utils.AbstractCloneIssue.FIELD_TARGET_PROJECT



Hi Jamie, I want to piggy back on this issue. Hope this is OK? I want the same scenario. Basically this: * When user moves an issue to a status. I will pop up a screen. Here he can select the project to clone this issue to from a custom field. * Once the issue is moved to this status. I want to use your clone and link post function to generate a new issue in same project with "cloned by" links. * I then want to use the "additional actions" to get the selected project and move it to the wanted project. So basically not pre-selecting the project on the post function but allowing the user to select it during transition to status. Is this doable?
