Script runner (or alternative) to run calculations after bulk edit


I'm facing a huge problem. Currently I'm calculation a custom field "defect value / serverity" based on the values of certain other custom fileds using the behavious plugin.

Now my customer wants to edit one of these field by bulk edit every release. That should trigger the behaviour or the calculation to re-calculate my defect value. Is there any possibility other than developing a plugin etc. to get around that problem?

Maybe a temporary global transition with the calculation as a post-function...

Thanks for any help,

Can't you use a calculated custom field? If it's the case that the value is calculated but then can be overridden by the user, then use the behaviours plugin. Otherwise, a calulated custom field is the better option.

Script runner plugin has "scripted fields", should you wish to use groovy.

Well, I have the code used in my behaviour.. Could I use the same code on a scripted field? I mean basically what I'm doing is running the same script on every custom field used to calculate my defect value in case on is getting updated.

Not the same code but similar.

Don't need to calculate anymore. Maybe I can get back to you if I need to create some scripted fields... Thanks anyway
