Scriptrunner - Cannot Release and Edit Version in the same Script

Hi all,

I'm having a strange issue when I try to release a Version and edit that Version's release date in the same script (see code below). If I try to do one or the other the change takes place just fine, but if I try to do both, only the second change works.

I've tried using VersionManager.update(version) to no avail, I've tried pausing for 10 seconds between function calls, and I've even tried running the two updates concurrently; no dice.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat

def project = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectByCurrentKey("project")
def versionManager = ComponentAccessor.getVersionManager()

def version = versionManager.getVersion(project.getId(), "3.4")

Date date = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2017-07-10")

//these are the updates in question
versionManager.releaseVersion(version, true) //this update will not persist
versionManager.editVersionReleaseDate(version, date) //this update will persist

Any advice would be great, thanks,

Hi Ben,

Your best off using VersionService to do this. It will do the validation for you and tell you exactly why you can't release or update a version.

Your script should look like the following which will release version "3.4" and set the release date as 2017-07-10.


import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.version.VersionService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat

def versionService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(VersionService)
def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager()

def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

def project = projectManager.getProjectByCurrentKey("project")
def version = versionService.getVersionByProjectAndName(user, project, "3.4")

def releaseDate = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2017-07-10")

def result = versionService.validateReleaseVersion(user, version, releaseDate)

if (result.isValid()) {
} else {
    log.error "Could not relase version '${}' due to the following errors: $result.errorCollection.errors"

Hope this helps.



Thanks Adam, that worked perfectly for me!
