Can scriptrunner create issue in epic only if a certain issue type is not already linked?

April Dec 30, 2016

Hi there,

I am setting up a transition that will auto-create a set of issues and add them to an epic, using the built in "Clones an issue and links" post-function.

I have a set of custom issue types for this, like "Training" and "Data," and the create and link is working fine.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLink
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLinkTypeManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLinkManager
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
Logger.getLogger("com.onresolve.scriptrunner").setLevel(Level.INFO)
 
Issue issue  = issue
CustomField epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link')
issue.summary = 'Training for ' + sourceIssue.key
checkAttachment = {attachment -> false}
issue.assignee = null
checkLink = {link -> false}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(epicLink, sourceIssue)

What I need to do is check if there's already a "Training" or whatever issue linked to the epic, so that I don't create duplicates.

I tried to write a condition, but this does not work, and the log says it does not return a Boolean:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLink
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLinkTypeManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.link.IssueLinkManager
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
Logger.getLogger("com.onresolve.scriptrunner").setLevel(Level.DEBUG)

def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def issueLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())
boolean passesCondition = true
issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.id).each {issueLink ->    
    def linkedIssue = issueLink.destinationObject 
    String issueType = linkedIssue.getIssueType()
    log.info "Issuetype is " + issueType
    if (issueType == "Training")
    passesCondition = false
}

 

Even the logging isn't really working, so I must be saying something stupid.

Is there some simple way to check for a duplicate here?

Thanks!

The method getIssueType() on an issue returns an IssueType object, not a string. So you should write

...
String issueType = linkedIssue.getIssueType().getName()

Hi Marc,

Thanks for your response! Actually, that throws the exactly same error, but I tried saying this another way, and this seems to work:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
// Check if instance of this issue type already exists
def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def issueLinks = issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.getId())
!(issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.id).each {issueLink ->
	def linkedIssue = issueLink.destinationObject
	String issueType = linkedIssue.getIssueType().getName()
	issueType == "Training"})

 So apparently, one cannot use a Boolean value here, but only test the truth of an entire statement.
