Change issue Rank using scriptrunner


Hello everyone!

How its possible in Jira 8 get and modify issue Rank?

I found old solution 

but seems it is no longer actual.

Any ideas how to use Rank service in scriptrunner?


I find how to get Rank, but if i wanna to change rank of issue (like JIRA-1 is now RankHigher than JIRA-2)


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def admin = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByKey('admin')
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issue1 = issueManager.getIssueByCurrentKey("JIRA-1")
def issue2 = issueManager.getIssueByCurrentKey("JIRA-2")
def rank = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(10700)
def rank_value1 = issue1.getCustomFieldValue(rank).toString()
def rank_value2 = issue2.getCustomFieldValue(rank).toString()

Hello. If I'm not mistaken JiraAgile plugin ranks the issues, so you need use its classes and in particular com.atlassian.greenhopper.api.rank.RankService. Try this to make rank of issue1 after issue2:

import com.atlassian.greenhopper.api.rank.RankService
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.WithPlugin
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.JiraAgileBean
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor


RankService rankService

def user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByKey('userName')
def issue1 = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey("KEY")
def issue2 = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueByCurrentKey("KEY")
def rank = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObject(rankFieldId)

rankService.rankAfter(user, rankFieldId, issue1, issue2)
