Simple scripted condition in groovy. ScriptRunner.


How can I say this simple scripted condition: previous issuetype was "Bug", current issuetype is "New Feature" in groovy?

Another solution.

You can create a new Custom Field that when an issue changes from 'Bug' to 'New Featura' put a value in custom field (ex. 'Yes') (you can do these with custom listener).

So, you'll have more easy to make the condition of groovy, because you've only have to check on the condition if the custom field is set to 'yes'.

Hope it helps.


Oh, I like this idea. I guess I can use it. Thanks!

what is mean by previous issue type was bug and current issuetype is "New Feature" ?

do you mean issue created as bug and later moved to new feature?

or assumen current issue is TEST-12 bug and prvious issue is TEST-11 new feature, is it like this?

I have builtin script listener "Fast-track transition an issue":

event: Issue Moved

condition: issuetype was Bug, and new issuetype is New Feature.

And I don't know how to say this condition in groovy.

i am not getting exactly what do you want achive!!

can you explain little bit more about your requirement.

check this it may help you

Issue created as bug and later moved to new feature, at this moment listener should work. Only if it was a bug and now it's a new feature.

You'd need to run through the changehistory of the issue. Do you mean to check whether the issue type changed in this transition, or at any time previously?

I mean this condition. == "New Feature" && ??previous issuetype = Bug??

There is sample code in the UI for priority changed - you need to modify it for issuetype. Think the string you want is "issuetype", but could be wrong.
