scriptrunner post function : how to block transition

How can I block/cancel transition if some customfield values are not correct like a startdate >= enddate ?

And of course, showing a message to the user.

Here is my script on the create event:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def dateDebRsv = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12100")
def dateFinRsv = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12101")
def dateMEP = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12102")
def dateDebGar = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12103")
def dateFinGar = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12104")

def dateDebRsvValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateDebRsv)
def dateFinRsvValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateFinRsv)
def dateMEPValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(dateMEP)

if (dateDebRsv >= dateFinRsv)
	// Show error message
	// Block transition

if (dateMEPValue != null)
	issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateDebGar, dateMEPValue + 1)
	issue.setCustomFieldValue(dateFinGar, dateMEPValue + 15)

Hello Fabrice,

If you want to block/cancel a transition then you should use the "Validation" phase of the transition. As post-function phase means transition has already happened thus you should use the validation phase instead of post-function phase.


yes, I did that... and throw a new InvalidInputException to show error message.

thanks for your help.
