Hi I'm trying to use Groovy Runner to create an issue as part of a Post Function. However, before the post-function creates the issue, I'd like to run a search and check for existing issues with the same Summary or matching custom fields, and if found, link to that issue instead of creating a new issue.
I can't seem to find out how to do the jira search part of the script. I could probably do a JQL search in the GUI but I don't know how to translate that into script code. Any suggestions?
Here's a Java sample and you'll have to just port it to groovy:
final JqlQueryBuilder queryBuilder = JqlQueryBuilder.newBuilder(); final JqlClauseBuilder whereBuilder = queryBuilder.where().defaultAnd(); whereBuilder.summary().like("some summary") Query query = queryBuilder.buildQuery(); User user; SearchResults results = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchProvider.class).search(query, user, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter()); List<Issue> issues = results.getIssues();
You are going to have trouble bailing out of the "create" process from a post-function.
Maybe try doing it in a validator...?
There is some code for the behaviours plugin here: http://blogs.onresolve.com/2010/03/audo-duplicate-search-in-jira/- but you could get what you want out of it. Or use Boris' example.
