Simple Scripted Condition to validate issue transition against another issue with common custom fields


I'm new to Groovy and would like to use a condition to validate the transition of an issue.

Issue Types:

D, R, & RS

Custom Fields:



Given the current issue (type = D) with custom field TR (value = 1) and custom field DA (value = VP).

Is there an issue of type R (in the same project) with custom field TR having the same value of the current issue (value = 1)?


Does the issue of type R have a subtask issue of type RS with custom field DA having the same value of the current issue (value = VP)?

Thank you,

Gawd... this reminds me of sitting through maths lectures.

It's hard to follow through what you are saying, but your first task is to write a JQL for some sample values. For the sub-task part of your query, you could use parentsOf("issuetype = RS and DA = somevalue")

In the script runner there is a built-in condition which uses a jql query to check whether the user can do the transition. You can't use this alone though because you need to substitute one or more common values.

So you could look at the code for com.onresolve.jira.groovy.canned.workflow.conditions.JqlQueryCondition, convert it to a script, and modify the query to substitute in your values.
