what is the return value of "object.status.name.equals("Eng Assign")"?


In my groovy script, I need to check what is the return value of "object.status.name.equals("Eng Assign")", means it's integer value, boolean value, etc.

def object = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(link)         

if( object.status.name.equals("Eng Assign")  == 1 )

{ do some thing here }


{ do dome other logic here }


Also using this object I would like to get one custom field value - how to get this using object along with the status of the link issue.

object.server release == "some value" like this ....

For comparing equality, Groovy makes strings easy:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject(link)         
if( issue.status.name == "Eng Assign")
{ do some thing here }
{ do dome other logic here }

Both .equals and the == operators will return a boolean (true or false) as you'd expect.

To get the value of a custom field, you have to get the custom field object first, then get the value:

//...continuing from above script
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def releaseField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(issue).find{it.name == "Release"} //Change the name here to match your custom field; casing matters!

Thank you very much for your prompt response Jonny.

It really helps me to proceed fruter with my planned work now. Thanks again.
