Script Runner - Clones an issue and links

Hi All

I'm after some help for the script runner plugin by Jamie Echlin

I am using the builtin template ‘Clones an issue and links’ but I want the Target Project to be fed from a custom field (which is a multi-select containing the options of all the available JIRA projects)

Any help would be gratefully received

You may solve the problem by creating a custom field "Project select (single)".

In the section "Additional issue actions" of the "Clones an issue and links" post function:

you may want to add something like:

def cfObj = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_10102')
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfObj)
if (cfValue != null){

Where 'customfield_10102' is your project select field ID.
If no project is selected it will use the default one on "Target Project".

Hi @Matt C,

Can I ask why do you need to use a Custom Field instead of the current Target Project field?

Thanks @Cesare Jacopo Corzani, that works very well.



Hi @Alejo Villarrubia [Adaptavist]

Thanks for your reply

I would like to do this as part of a workflow transition, so the user interactively selects their target project in a transition screen and then the script takes that input for use in the 'Target Project'  otherwise the script will always use the same project I think



Hi @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist],

Would you be able to help me at all with this one?

Many Thanks

Hi @Cesare Jacopo Corzani

This doesn't appear to work in JIRA 7 - seems to have a problem with issue.setProjectId( Would you have any ideas?

Error below followed by the code

Many Thanks
