Write a groovy ( with script runner ) condition with a JQL filter



i need to use Script Runner listners to send a custom Email based on Date Picker custom field value: 

project = "Project" AND "Date Picker Custom Field" = 2d

The Email will be sent if the custom value =< 48h and i need to create a groovy condition on the listner with this jql filter.

Is it possible ?


Thanks in advance.


Best Regards,

Hi @wajih zouaoui ,

ScriptRunner's listener will run for some events not periodically. if you want to check the JQL condition and if there is any tickets send mail. if that is scenario I would suggest you to consider Filter Subscription feature


But yeah, You can use the same JQL query in scriptrunner's listener which you are using in jira filters

with help of searchService. I'm attaching sample snippet for your reference

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import org.apache.log4j.Logger

def jqlSearch = "\"Epic Link\" = ${issue.key}" // here issue.key refers event's issue
SearchService.ParseResult parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(appUser, jqlSearch)
if (parseResult.isValid()) {
def searchResult =, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())
def issues = searchResult.issues.collect {issueManager.getIssueObject(}
issues.each { i ->
// your action here
