script listener not cloning with two conditions; when "all projects" selected as source

running a script listener - clones an issue and links

when i select a single project for source, event - issue created

  1. for one condition  cfValues['testcf1'].value == 'opt1', this works fine, it creates a clone in target project and links
  2. for two condition - cfValues['testcf1'].value == 'opt1' && issue.Labels()*.label == 'test' , this is not working

Also for 1, one condition, if i select "All Projects" as source, since i want clone any project issue with that custom field, scriptrunner is creating multiple issues continuously, i have to cancel the operation.

@Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist], can you please check this and help us.

i want clone an issue from any project, when both conditions are met, how can we achieve this with scriptrunner.

So, one easy way to address the infinite issue creation would be to add a third clause to your condition that prevents cloned issues from being included. You could either specify the project & issue type that the target issue will be, then exclude that specific project/issue type combination in your condition.

Another way would be to use the Additional issue actions script block to set a field on the target issue, then exclude issues with that field set to that value. For example:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
issue.setCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("My Custom Field"), "DO NOT CLONE THIS")

Then, your condition might be

"test" in issue.labels*.label & cfValues['testcf1'].value == 'opt1' && cfValues["My Custom Field"] != "DO NOT CLONE THIS"

Your comment above is right, and should resolve the labels not being considered.

for 2 conditions below code works good.

"test" in issue.labels*.label & cfValues['testcf1'].value == 'opt1'.

but still when i select "All projects" as source, it keeps cloning issues!!!!

Jonny, Thanks for your response, i am selecting target project and issue type for above event listener.

Problem is when i select source as "All Projects" infinite issue creation happens. when i select single  project as source, this works fine.

i want to clone an issue from any project when condition is met to target project.
