why groovyrunner executes the clone and link post function without stop?

Hi everybody,

i'm using clones an issue and links postfuction in create transition in order to create a related issue.

The problem that occurs is that postfunction doesn't terminate it's execution and as a result creates the same issue hundred times and after that JIRA crushes down.

You can see the order of the post functions in the attached file.

Plugin's version is: 2.0.6

JIRA version is: 4.4

Any idea of what's going on?

Thanks,

Kostas

You create an issue. The post-function creates another issue and links it. The issue that's created also has it's post-functions invoked. Therefore you get a never-ending chain of issues.

If you want to create another issue that has the exact same workflow, and you want an issue cloned on the create step, you need to put in some condition such that it's only true for the human-generated issue.

If you log.debug the values of transientvars and args, you should find something that you could use for the condition.

Thanx a lot. It was a terrible mistake.

Not really ;-)

Presumably you were testing on a dev instance so you didn't take down your production jira...
