Check if field is updated

Robi Anton Mar 24, 2016

Hi, 

An issue is created and have a selected date in a custom field. 

On a self-transition, I want to check if the date field is updated (if the the old selected date != to new selected date)

Thanks

Hi Robi,

According to documentation you can get the old and new values in a post function (and in your case should be a condition that returns true or false after the comparison)

def change = transientVars.changeItems.find {it.field == "Name of custom field"}
if (change) {
	// you have the value, do something with them and return true or false
    def oldValue = change.oldstring 
	def newValue = change.newstring
}

Note: Tested in my instance (JIRAv7.1)and instead of oldstring and newstring for a Date picker custom field is change.fromString and change.toString

Kind regards

Hey Thanos, 

 

It doesn't seems to work. I don't get anything on change.

Hi Robi,

Do you get any errors in your logs ? Also the above requires a change, which means that you have a screen during the transition and you change the value of the custom field in that screen.
