Scriptrunner Behaviours to set all fields read only instead of on the workflow status

Steve Letch September 28, 2022


To avoid having to set every field available on the edit screen individually to read only, it would be a lot easier to just use an initializer that sets every field to editable false depending on project role.


The reason I want to use Behaviors for this instead of setting editable false on the status on the workflow, is because my workflow schemes are shared and I don't want the restriction to apply to other projects and I also don't want to have to copy the project over to a clone of the same workflow just to satisfy this requirement.


Basically something like the below:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE
// if the current user is in the Users role only, set the issue type to "Story", and lock it
def projectRoleManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectRoleManager)
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def usersRoles = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoles(user, issueContext.projectObject)*.name
if (Status == Done) {
    getFieldById(>>>>>ALL FIELDS<<<<)

You can get to each fields using the getFieldScreen method that's built into behaviours.

something like

getFieldScreen().tabs.each { tab ->
tab.fieldScreenLayoutItems.each { field ->

Or as a one-liner

fieldScreen.tabs*.fieldScreenLayoutItems*.each{getFieldById(it.fieldId).readOnly = true}

@Peter-Dave Sheehan Thank You,

I just used this to hide all fields, then show only specified fields dependant on the Customer Request Type, from another one of your posts :-)
