Setting fields hidden/shown with Behaviours Plugin, not functioning?

I'm trying to implement this:

in the exact scenario. We have users who abuse Blocker, so I wanted to create a justification window with a custom note if a user selects blocker.

I configued the Custom Field...and I set up the Behavior on Priority to either show or hide this field if blocker is selected, but it doesn't seem to do that...this is something I need for the Create Issue Screen. Not sure what I'm doing wrong?

Did you apply the behaviour to a project? Can you paste relevant screenshots?

It should be a script not a method. Looks like you are just defining a method but nothing will call that.

oops. i missed that part of the instructions. So I can add that method to the existing ScriptSample.groovy file, yes?

I think so... but I would just paste it in to the box where you currently have it, but without the public blah() {...}

One other question...does the getFormValue method always return an integer? So, 1 = Blocker, 2 = Critical, etc. or do I have to modify it to match the actual String values of my priorities?

getFormValue returns a string, it looks like an integer though. getValue() should return an actual priority object which you can call .getName() on.

Hi Jamie,

I using behavior to hide comments. It was working fine few days back now it is not working. in fact it is not working anything now.


Here is xml for your reference:-

<config use-validator-plugin="false" name="Hide Comments " description="WMS_WF" guideWorkflow="WMS_WF_Jan_6_2015">
<field id="comment" required="null" readonly="null" hidden="true">
<when action="541"/>
<when action="61"/>

I enabled logging and found following error:-
