Sending email through Script runner when custom field value updated

Jane I'm New Here Jan 06, 2022

Hi All, 

As a project manager, I want stakeholders to be informed by sending email when the endDate which is custom field is behind schedule.

I've tried multiple examples of code that sends an email from a listener and they all fail at filter the above requirement.



import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder

jiraBaseUrl = ComponentAccessor.getApplicationProperties().getString(APKeys.JIRA_BASEURL)
def link="${jiraBaseUrl}/browse/${issue.key}"

def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "endDate"}
if (change) {
    log.debug "Old value(OriginalEndDate) : ${change.oldstring}"
    log.debug "New value(UpdatedEndDate) : ${change.newstring}"   
log.debug "Value changed by ${event.user} at ${event?.getChangeLog()?.created}"

// I want to send email above logs to stakeholders when New value(UpdatedEndDate) - Old value(OriginalEndDate) >= 1

When I've tried to create Send a custom email(non-issue events) for using CustomFieldUpdatedEvent, Every line seems to be needed as the validator complains. 

How can I send email Associating proper script with the event listener?

Thank you in advance for your help.
