Hi Nic,

I tried to use the getStatusId() and setStatusId() functions to change the EPIC status from To Do to In Progress. But it's not working / issueInputParameters1 is blank.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException
def issue = issue as Issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
def epicLinkCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Epic Link")
def epicLink = issue.getCustomFieldValue(epicLinkCf) as Issue

def issueInputParameters1 = issueService.newIssueInputParameters().getStatusId()

log.debug (issueInputParameters1)

if (issueInputParameters1 == 'To Do') {
log.debug ('EPIC Status in in To Do state')
def issueInputParameters2 = issueService.newIssueInputParameters().setStatusId('In Progress')

issueInputParameters1 is blank ...

log.debug (issueInputParameters1)

Do not try to set a status directly.

You need to move the issue through the workflow to get it to the right status.  The only time setStatusId can be used is by the workflow transitions and by an issue import creating issues.

See for how to change status properly.
