Scriptrunner behaviour, issue type restriction not working when user has other language than default Edited


In order to restrict issue types on several projects, we have applied the sample code from


The code is next:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE

def project = issueContext.projectObject

def projectIssueTypes = project.getIssueTypes()
def issueTypeField = getFieldById(ISSUE_TYPE)
def availableIssueTypes = []

def types_list = ["Bug", "Task", "Epic", "Story", "Story Bug", "Test"]

availableIssueTypes.addAll(projectIssueTypes.findAll { ( in types_list) })
availableIssueTypes.each { log.error ">>>>>>>"" => " }



It seems to be working, except for users with profile language other than instance default.

For those users, we see the "availableIssueTypes" array has the right info, but something at UI level makes that only "Test" issue type is available in the dropdown menu.


Has anybody an idea about a solution for this?

Hey Manuel, 

I just tested your script on jira 7.13 and it seems to work, if I change my profile language I get a list of issue types from the behaviour with the translated values. 

Perhaps you could try working with the ID's instead? 

Hi Tessa, 


You'right, I've tested in a fresh installation of 7.9.2 (same versión as the one failing) and it's working ok.

It seems like any kind of corruption on the issue types.

This momment I'm checking the database tables.
