Scriptrunner Workflow condition is not hiding the transition in issues when it computes to false


I have a condition I wrote to hide a transition unless there is an issue with the type "Problem" linked to the current issue. When I test the code in ScriptRunners code console against different issues it results in True and False as would be expected for the test issues. The problem is when I put in in the workflow on the transitions condition tab the transition never gets hid. I write to the log the result of the condition and can see the false result, but the transition is still available. Thoughts on what I am missing/not understanding causing the transition to still show even when the below code results in False?


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

Boolean passesCondition = false
def type =[]

def linkMgr = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()

for (IssueLink link in linkMgr.getOutwardLinks( {
for (IssueLink link in linkMgr.getInwardLinks( {

for (item in type) {
    if(item == "Problem"){
        passesCondition  = true
log.warn (passesCondition)

Quick easy fix from closer reading of the examples.


I am declaring passesCondition as a Boolean in my code. It's a special variable in scriptrunner apparently and does not need to be declared. I removed the deceleration and all started working.
