Set Component in groovy script

Hello,

I want to set a component value in a post-function of the creation of an issue.

Therefore, I created a groovy script in the post-function of the create issue that set a specific value to the issue.

If this specific value is not exists in the project component list, the script will create it first and then will set this component to the issue.

 

Here is my script:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.DefaultUserManager
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.UserMessageUtil

import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Category
def Category log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.Condition")
log.setLevel(org.apache.log4j.Level.DEBUG)


MutableIssue myIssue = issue
Project project = myIssue.getProjectObject()

def theComponent = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager().findByComponentName(project.getId(),'PSW')
//log.info("The Component is: " + theComponent)

if (theComponent == null) {
theComponent = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager().create("PSW","PSW component","",0,project.getId())
//log.info("The Component not exists")
//log.info(theComponent)
}


myIssue.setComponent([theComponent])

 

Something is not working here. The component is not set to the new issue, any idea why?

//log.info("The Component not exists")
//log.info(theComponent)
}


myIssue.setComponent([theComponent])

myIssue.store()

It's still not working...

 

Any other idea?

Try this script. It works for me. Do not forget that only Project Administrator can create a component if the component is absent

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.DefaultUserManager
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.UserMessageUtil
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Category
def Category log = Category.getInstance("com.onresolve.jira.groovy.Condition")
log.setLevel(org.apache.log4j.Level.DEBUG)

 

def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
MutableIssue myIssue = issue
Project project = myIssue.getProjectObject()

def theComponent = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager().findByComponentName(project.getId(),'PSW')
//log.info("The Component is: " + theComponent)

if (theComponent == null) {
theComponent = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager().create("PSW","PSW component","",0,project.getId())
//log.info("The Component not exists")
//log.info(theComponent)
}


myIssue.setComponent([theComponent])
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(user,myIssue,EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED,true)

Thank you so much!

Now it's working perfect!

Is the post functin on creation? if so add issue.store()

And your post function must be before reindexing post function

Thank you.

Where should I add it? (the issue.store())
