Script Runner Transition parent issue based on subtask status JIRA 8


How to make auto set up with Scrip runner if sub-task status changed from ToDo parent task gets status In Progress

JIRA 8.2.1 - Script Runner:

I tried this one:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.pico.ComponentManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager;

import com.opensymphony.workflow.WorkflowContext;

import org.apache.log4j.Category;

import com.atlassian.jira.config.SubTaskManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtil;

import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl;

import com.atlassian.jira.util.JiraUtils;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;


String currentUser = ((WorkflowContext) transientVars.get("context")).getCaller();

WorkflowTransitionUtil workflowTransitionUtil = (WorkflowTransitionUtil) JiraUtils.loadComponent(WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl.class);

MutableIssue parent = issue.getParentObject() as MutableIssue


String originalParentStatus = parent.getStatus().getSimpleStatus().getName()

def isDevBacklogStatus = originalParentStatus in ['To Do']


if (isDevBacklogStatus) {




if (workflowTransitionUtil.validate()) {





But got an error: use ComponentManager.loadComponent(Class, Collection)

Hi @Asta Adamonytė 

JiraUtils.loadComponent is deprecated and it might be removed within further releases.

loadComponent(Class<T> componentClass)
use ComponentManager.loadComponent(Class, Collection)

See API documentation here. But it is still not removed, so you can still use it. So, it should be a warning instead of error.

Hi @Tuncay Senturk -Snapbytes- 

Thanks! I am totally green with Script Runner. Maybe you could write how it should be used in full script? :) 

Hi @Asta Adamonytė 

There is nothing wrong with your script. 

I just typed it into Script console and it succeeded on transitioning the issue.

You can add some logs to your script like: log.error("trace 1") and see the logs whether it is executed normally.

Thanks! Need more time for this.
