ScriptRunner Behaviours Constrained Issue get CustomField from current issue Edited

Hello,

i try to create a "constrained issue" (https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/5.2.0/jira/fragments/CreateConstrainedIssue.html) button for creating a new issue based on the current issue.

I get all fields that i need expect a single custom field value (single line text).

Here is the complete behaviours script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.*
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
//Check to make sure this is the correct context for the behaviour.

if (getBehaviourContextId() == "create-document") {

//Set the project and issuetype to be readonly so the user cannot alter these.
getFieldById("project-field").setReadOnly(true)
getFieldById("issuetype-field").setReadOnly(true)

//Find the details of the Issue from which the request to link was made
def contextIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(getContextIssueId())
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

//Pre-populate the Summary, issue link and issue link type, security level and reporter.
getFieldById("summary").setFormValue("Document Request created from ${contextIssue.reporter.displayName}").setReadOnly(false)
getFieldById(REPORTER).setFormValue("${contextIssue.reporterId}").setReadOnly(true)
getFieldById("security").setFormValue("${contextIssue.securityLevelId}").setReadOnly(true)
getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype").setFormValue("was split from").setReadOnly(true)
getFieldById("issuelinks-issues").setFormValue("${contextIssue.key}").setReadOnly(true)

// Hard Coded values work but i need the value from the current issue. In this case it's a single line text field
getFieldById("customfield_13206").setFormValue("Some hard coded textthat i want read from customfield_13206").setReadOnly(true)
}

 Here is the line that i want to make more dynamic :)

getFieldById("customfield_13206").setFormValue("Some hard coded textthat i want read from customfield_13206").setReadOnly(true)

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Tim

Hi Tim,

So if you are not in an issue create screen, you can get the issue using the 

underlyingIssue

bound variable. Therefore if you want to get the value of the custom field with key customfield_13206 you will need something like 

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_13206")
def cfValue = underlyingIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)

 Hope that helps, ping me if you have any other questions.

Hello Thanos,

i've replaced my line with your line and this didn't work.

I get this error in atlassian-jira.log

Okay, i got it :) 

I think the problem was, that my variable for context was contextIssue and not underlyingIssue

 getFieldById("customfield_13206").setFormValue(contextIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_13206"))).setReadOnly(true) 

Thanks for your help.

Hey Tim, 

Sorry I misread the question (the underlying issue would be the solution if you were editing the same issue).

But in your case what you are doing with the contextIssue is the right way.

Glad you found it :)

Hi Tim,

Tried your code, but it doesn't work for me. Also tried with "${}" substitution such as:

getFieldById("customfield_13206").setFormValue("${contextIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_13206"))}").setReadOnly(true)

 That still didn't work. Did you put your code as Initialiser or on the Field itself?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hey,

getBehaviourContextId() always returns null. Is there another method/field to get this context?

Regards.

I'm also getting null from getBehaviourContextId()

Hi,

Same here. I get null for getBehaviourContextId() and null for getContextIssueId(). Have you found a workaround?

Thanks

Michal
